OF ALL TBE GREAT CURIOSITIES WHICH 
attract th«> most attention at tho MeohanieB' 
t"air, are the wonderful ImpiovemeutB which are 
bow attained to thtr wclMmown WHEELER & 
WILSON SEWING MACHINE, without tho com 
plction of the others. This la tbe only Family 
Sewing Machine with the hew Silent Feed Motion. 
Irmabe-H one thousand button-holes per day, on 
linen, cotton or woolen goods. It seWe on the 
binding of a dresB, without previous boating 1 , in 
four minutes; and whitn Bewlng On one-tuoaV 
makes the Hue of marks for another; f>atbern and 
eeives on at the same time; hems silk or woolen 
goods with e*inal faciHiy; cords and braids with 
surprising qnicknesa; makesartlcleB formen'sa* 
wclTas women's wear; takes two thousand stitches 
per mtmm>, which U flfteen hundred stitches 
moro than any other lockstitch can make. 

This wohdurfiil machine has no shuttle to thread 
five or six times before starling, which fss great 
BivfrJg ot tinie. It is a* positive fact that WHEE- 
LER & WILSON'S FAMILY SEWING MA- 
CHINES will do all the same kind of workthnt- 
the other machines now on sale will do — will 
make tbe canie amgle thread loop-stitch that rav- 
•■la out; also tho double loop-stitcb, which alao 
ravels out very conveniently, because ybu cun 
sew with ol6 yard oi thread all daylong, BLwiug 
in youx thread, then raveling it and sowing it i ; 
n^ain! and ho on— all righr, and very convenientn 
but you will find that the sumo WHEELER & 
WILSON FAMILY SEWING MACHINE that does 
all these wonoerfnl things, makes also the only 
♦straight, solid lock-stitch which cannot he rareled 
perfectly safe to walk to church with clothing 
made with this stitch; also this machine will 
make the three thread embroidery etitch, which 
ts the loop-stitch and lock-stitch combined, and 
rWfbl Uin mobt beansiful ornamental finish, per- 
fectly secure against raveling, and very durable. 
Tho Amejucuk iNSrrncTE, New Vork, reports : 

"This Machine makes the 

lock: stitch, 

and ranks highest I on account of tho elasticity 
pnrmanence, beauty and general desirableness of 
application." 

This report was la accordance with the previ- 
ous — tire stitchlijgwheii-df-ne, and the wido range 
■-'> lie _w«"ls ai Uia Fair of the United States

Stettin, Cologne und Witiuar lbt;5, bi^ar testimony 
to the BUpsriority of this MacMD*- and its tppre- 
ciation abroad. . At all ihese Intern tional Exbl- 
bitions the test fruits of. foriign genius were 
arrayed against it, hacked by national amour 
propre; but there, as here, tbe itar of its destiny 
is always in the ascendant. 

Indeed, no human testimony could be stronger 
than that which Iibb been accoided thin Machine 
for superiority overall others for iunuily ut.u and 
for general manufacturing purposes. 

We otn now supply our customers with Stod. 
dard'p Patent Tuck M.tker for the Wheeler At Wil- 
son Machine only, one of tho most useful attach- 
ments for the Machine ever invented, which 
while the Machine is sewing one tuck,' makes tha 
line of marts for tbe next.

PnrMnTM nt the great State Fair held in Sacra-

These, Mm-hines are ppocially aaapted for the 
use of farmer**, being able to sew grain sacks and 
heavy oiotditng with the same facility as the usual 
family work— making a more durable «eam~not 
liable to ravel, as is the case of the lot p or

SEAR, BLESSED OLD WOMAN! 
Dear old Granny Alia yesterday said 
tbat she had a few remarks to make on the 
subject of the small-p jx. Granny Alia is 
as full of oracular wisdom as was Jack 
Btinsby. Wiping her bleary old eyes she 
wagged her toothless old jaws to the fol- 
lowing effect: 

But the condition of the atmosphere was 
n f, t fte t he disease ; if it were. 

all would hace been sick, for all are exposed 
to the air. 'Neither was the di&easo a divine 
or a diabolical visitation, nor a punishment 
for not paying tiihes; nor was it decreed 
from all eternity to be the misfortune of a 
few. It was the result of something in the 
atmosphere actiug on the organs of those 
persons who were especially liable to dis- 
ease. They were not in good health when 
they were exposed to the dangerous air. 
They had neglected some rule of hygiene. 
If we understood hygiene perfectly, and 
knew also the whole history of the small' 
pox patients, we should be able to tell pre- 
cisely why each one was taken sick. The 
whole affair is natural in origin, progress 
and termination. 

There's wisdom in solid chunks. "The 
condition of tho atmosphere was not the 
sole cause of the disease; if it were all 
would have been sick, for all are exposed 
to the air." What a head 1 "If we un- 
derstood hygiene perfectly " — what a 
pity it is Granny Alta doesn't understand 
hygieDe— "and knew also the whole htB- 
tory of the small-pox patients we should 
be able to tell precisely why each one was 
taken sick. ' If so be as bow they catch 
the amall-pox, why so ; and if so bo as 
how they don't catch the small-pox, why 
so again, also. Lord I what a head ! 
Couldn'; Granny tell ua all about it with 
less information to po on than the history 
of each small-pox patient? Wouldn't a 
lock of hair and day and hour of birth do ? 
If the Alta refuses to give any more infor- 
mation on the subject until she knows the 
history of all the small-pox patients, then 
let a committee be at once appointed to 
inquire into the micutest particulars of 
their lives and lay the result of their 
labors before the old lady on California 
street. 

Sensible Woman. 

11 Elise " writes to the Call, expressing 
her opinion that the street cars are the 
chief means of spreading the infection of 
small-pox, and makes the following augges- 
tion : ' 

Let the rule forbidding smoking fa street 
cars— made far the pleasure and convenience 
of us ladies— be temporary suspended, and 
it will be found that the flavor of tobacco 
smoke will be less objected to, than the com- 
bination of ill odors that now assail us from 
a crowded, ill ventilated car, while a certain 
sense of security will be afforded us. Al- 
though such fumigation may be of no great 
value, is u not better than none, and worth 
a trial, if it is only a woman's idea? Last 
evening's experience of the benefit afforded 
me by a cigar smoker on a car platform , has 
prompted this note. 

"Eiise" is a sensible woman. Tobacco 
smoke is quite as good a disinfectant as 
carbolic acid, as generally used at present, 
and far more pleasant. It would perhaps 
be well to carry it out a little more fully 
and allow smoking in theatres, and even iu 
churches during the present unhealthy state 
of the atmosphere. Though of course it 
would not do for the Reverend Horatio 
Stebbios to smoke in the pulpit and deliver 
a sermon with a cigar in his mouth, his 
congregation might smoke him. Let sweet 
incense of the balmy nicotian weed, be of- 
fered up, and thus cause the avenging Deity 
of Dr. Stcne to furl bis yallow flag, " His 
banner of royalty." Let the ladies smoke 
cigarettes. Let every one smoke every- 
where and the small-pox will be smoked 
out of the city. Hearty puffs from our 
meerschaum arise as we are writing this 
as incense to the sensible "Elise." 



Van Winkle- nnd the Dog. 

Van Winkle sues for $10,000 damages in 
the Twelfth District Court, for iujuriea re- 
ceived from being bitten by a dog. We 
regret to state tbat Von Winkle's name is 
not "Sip," and the dog wasn't called 

"Schnieder."

"The IIlBhont DutUs." 

In South Shields, England, a college is 
being erected in which sailors are to befit- 
ted for the highest duties of their calling. 
— Ex.. 

What are they? Slushing down the 
maintop and painting the truck ? 



The DlflToruneo. 

An exchange says : 

Tho people of Virginia City, Nevada, treat 
small-pox with indifference. 
Jn San Francisco they treat small-pox 

patients indifferently.

The Seasonal. 

The Summer has passed. away even in Cali- 
fornia, and Winter stands at the door. The 
earth is putting on her Winter garb and her 
inhabitants are also adopting * costume 
suited to the season. The fashionable men 
of San Francisco are flocking to the great 
clothing stores of V. R Mi;adi: &, Co.. at the 
corners of Montgomery and Bosh, and San- 
some and Washington, and purchasing those 
durable, fashionable Fall and Winter suits 
which he iB now selling and will continue to 
sell for the next thirty days at such remarka- 
bly low prices. *

The Chronicle reporter having caught the 
infection from FiteSroythe, says " that was 
bare-faced ingratitude." We notice that tho

press the horn-blowing nuisance. Will thev

■\Ye find the following in the Daily 
Rocky Mounlain Slar t Cheyenne, Wyoming: 

Grand Lottery ! ! !— The rarest chance 
ever offered to the public ! The European 
Restaurant, with bar and all the furniture 
necessary to run a first-class eating and 
lodging honse. Call and see for yourself. 
Here's a chance to step into a good business 
for $10; 1'20 tickets at *10 each. See*po*ters. 
H. Billers. 

Now that is a chance seldom offered, but 
one thing is wanted. The winner possibly 
might be one who did not know how to 
run a first-class eating and lodging house. 
Therefore some one to run it ought to go 
with the house, and thus the winner would 
get board aud lodging for life.

THE GREAT SECRET, 

" How to secure the attention and affection? 
of the opposite sex,'' is solved by wearing the 
elegant boots made only by Ctt as. F. Howard, 
604 Kearny street. All those stylish boots 
which excited such general observation 
and admiration at the late ball were bis 
manafacture, and bare been universally pro- 
nounced the most extraordinary combination 
of ease, elegance and fashion ever produced. 
Tbey are made in exact conformity with the 
reqoiremcnuof the anatomy of the fbot.thu* 
securing to all who wear them perfect im- 
munity irom corns and bunions, and to tender 
feet a luxurious seiiso of comfort unknown 
before. 

C. F. H. acknowledges, with feelings of 
pride and pleasure, two courtesy of several 
hundred ladies recently married, or engaged 
to he married, who have by letter gracefully 
and gratefully confessed that they attribute 
their present happiness to the elegant boots 
bought at No. tXH Kearny street. Beware of 
the *pnriou4 imiiations which envious and 
unprincipled TOnuori are attempting to palm 
nil' on the public as " the same article," etc., 
and which surely cripple the wearers sooner 
or later. The genuine article can only be ob- 
tained of Chaklks F. Howard, 60J Kearny 
atraet, aecond door north of Sacramento.

PIRATES 

SAIL UNDER FALSE COLORS. 

THE BEST EVIDENCE OF THE VALUE OF 
au article muy be found in the fact of its 
having numerous imitators. Every fine poem 
has i's parodies : even meretorlons literary work 
is subject to plflg&rismn ; every Miccess'ul play 
has bten burlesqued ; every honest man has bis 
detractors ; every genuine dollar hae been coun- 
ter, eiUd ; and every \aluible medicinal prepara- 
tion has its vile imitations. The proprietors of 

DR. HENLEY'S 

WILD GRAPE ROOT l-X-L BITTERS 

Have encountered the usual experience in this 
respect. Such has been the success of this 
BtetKag preparation, that all inferior articles of 
the Mod have virtually been driven from the 
market, Theconcoclors of these beverage?, fiud- 
ii z tbat this new Tonic has exactly met the pub- 
lic wanf, and thai to further demand exists for 
inferior preparation?, have resorted to the dis- 
honest expedient of imitating either the name 
or the nty e of h>bel, both oi which have been 
duly wcured by the laws of the State to the 
proprietors ot too I-X L Bitters. 

In justice lo ourselves, sewrll as to the public, 
who may be deceived by these nefarious prac- 
tices, wc hereby notify itll parties guilty ol in- 
fringement uii our rights, as well as those who 
have be-u buying up our old bottles in order to 
palm off their own nostrums as the genuine 
article, that they will be prosecuted to the luU 
extent of the law. 

For the further protection of consumers, we 
would state thai we never sell our Bitters In bulk, 
but always by the case. Look for our Trade 
Mark an every bottle ; and in ordering the article 
otherwise than direct from us, be *urc to order 
"JDr. Henley's Wild Grape ItoU I-X-L Bitters," 
and don't allow yourself to be imposed upon 
with an inferior article.

F ALL THE GREAT CURIOSITIES WHICH 
attract the most attention it the Mechanics' 
F.iir, are the wonderful improvements which are 
now attached to the well-known WHEELER & 
WILSON SEWLNQ MACHINE, without the com 
pletion of the others. This la the only Familj 
Sowing Machine with the new Silent Feed Motion. 
It makes one thousand button-holes per day, on 
linen, cotton or woolen goods. It sews on the 
binding of a dress, without previous basting, in 
(our minutes; and while sewing on one tuck, 
makes the line of marks for another; gathers and 
sewes on at the same time; hems silk or woolen 
goods with e^ual faciliiy; cords and braids with 
surprising quickness; makesarticleBformen'sas 
well as women's wear; takes two thousand etitches 
per minute, which is fifteen hundred stitches 
more than any other lock-stitch can make. 

This wond«rfnl machine bas no shuttle to thread 
five or six times before starting, which is a great 
saving of lime. It is a positive fact that WHEE- 
LER & WILSON'S FAMILY SEWTNa MA- 
CHINES will do all the same kind of work that 
the other machines now on sale will do — will 
make the same single thread loop-stifceh tbat rav- 
els out; also the double loop-stitch, which also 
ravels out very conveniently, because you can 
sew with one yard of thread all day long, sewing 
in your thread, then raveling it and sewing it 1 ; 
again, and so on — all right, and very convenientn 
but j- or* will find that the same WHEELER & 
WILSON FAMILY SEWING MACHINE that does 
all these wonderful things, makes also the only 
straight, solid lock-stitch which cannot bo raveled 
perfectly safe to walk to church with clothing 
made with this stitch; also this machine will 
make the three thread embroidery stitch, which 
is the loop-stitch and lock-stitch combined, and 
forms the most beautiful ornamental finish, per- 
fectly secure against raveling, and very durable. 
The Amebicam Institute, New York, reports : 
•• This Maohiue makes the 

LOCK STITCH, 
and ranks highest on account of the elasticity 
permanence, beauty and general desirableness of 
application." 

This report was in accordance with the previ- 
ous — the stitchingwhen done, and thewide range- 
of its awards at the Fair of the United States 
Agricultural Society, at the Fairs of the 
American Institute, New York ; 
Mechanics' Association, Boston ; 
Franklin Institute, Philadelphia; 
Kentucky Institute. Baltimore ; 
Mechanics' Association, Clnciz^atl; 
Mechanics' Association, St. LouiB ; 
Mechanics' Institute, 8an FranciBCO ; 
Metropolitan Mechanics' Institute, Washington. 

AT THE STATE FAIBS OF 

Maine, Virginia, Tennessee, 

Vermont, Mississippi, Illinois, 

Connecticut, Missouri; Kentucky, 

New York, Ohio, Michigan, 

New Jersey, Indiana, Wisconsin, 

Iowa, Pennsylvania, California, 

And at hundreds of Country Fairs. 
The battle-fields of Napoleon I. were scarcely 
m<->re numerous than the foreign contests of the 
Wheeler & Wilson Sewing Machines. Pari* in 
1801, London 1862, Linz and KcsnigBburg 1S68, 
Dautzic, Agram and Krema 18G4. and Dublin, 
Stettin, Cologne and Wiemarl8tJ5, bear testimony 
to the superiority of tbiB Machine and its appre- 
ciation abroad. At all these Intern itional Exhi- 
bitions the best fruits of foreign genius were 
arrayed against it, backed by national amour 
propre ; but there, as here, the star of its destiny 
iB always in the ascendant, 

Indtcd, no hnman testimony could be atrongoi 
than that which has been accorded thia Machine 
for superiority over all others for family use and 
for general manufacturing purposes. 

We can now supply our customers with Stod 
dard's Patent Tuck M-ker for the Wheeler & Wit 
uon Machine only, one of the most useful at a h- 
ments for the Machine ever invented, which, 
while the Machine is sewing one tuck, makeB ca« 
line of marks for the next, 

t3~ This Tuck Marker was awarded the Piusi 
Premium at the great State Fair held in Sacra- 
mento, 18117, over all competitors. 

These Machines are specially adapted for the 
uBe of farmer*, being able to «ew grain sacks and 
heavy clothing with the same facility as the usual 
family work— making a more durable seam— not 
liable to ravel, as is the case or the locp or 
chain atit.h. 

*y For Family Sewing, Tailors, Seamstresses 
Drtss-Makers, Cloak-Makers, Corset-Makers for 
BtiichinLi Gaiters, Hals and Caps, the WHEELER 
k WIXBON Machines are acknowledged to be 
the beat 

Wheeler 4 Wilson's Improved Vferaiiy Sewing 
Machines, vri'h Glasa Pressor, Improved Loop- 
Check, New Style Hemmer, Binder, Corder 
Braider, etc. 

.J™- Highest Premium (Gold Medal) awarded at 
the Great World's Exposition at PariM*67 was 
given to the Wheeler & Wilson Machine over 
ajj, others. This Machine also received the 
Highest Premium at thelnternational Exhibition, 
London. 18fi3, snd the First Premium at thi 
Mechanics' Fair, San FranciEco, 1867.

CIroiin.-(itii* , **M Alter Conc*>. 

Itae Alia has from lime to lime inveighed 
against those who break the law by carry- 
ing concealed weapons. Now, M. Price, the 
Mont^oroery-slren cutler, in anticipation of 
■ emigrationof our citizens lo White 
Pine and other places where there is but 
little law, has invented a weapon for the 
purpose of self-defeoso, and the Alia anx- 
ious to serve him — as he advertises liber- 
ally — gives a vivid description of this in- 
strument, u .d advises every citizen to break 
the law by carrying a concealed weapon. 
It closes its lone argument in favor of stab- 
bing thus: 

Ap the weapon could not readily be 
knocked out ot hid hand, and every blow is 
Riven Btraighi oat with the full strength of 
his arm, with the weight ut the body" of the 
holder to back it, a filial wound at the first 
pass la almost a matter ot course. The 
weapon is so simple tiiat it may be carried in 
a Veal i ulose quarters would 

be more murderously effective than the 
Italian stiletto, which has sent so many sonls 
to a last account. Iu these times. when par- 
rote'.- ami robbers are about, it is well for 
the private citizen lo be prepared for any 
emergency. 

The fact that " a fatal wound at the first 
pass is almost a matter of course," must 
be a great recommendation of this weapon 
to the peaceable citizens of San Francisco. 
This article, in defiance of the law and in 
the interest of M. Prica and the Coroner, 
cannot be too much admired.

"PET NAMES." 

The Times thus endorses George Francis 
Train's remarks on pet names among wo- 
men: 

George Francis Train, with all his rhodo- 

.-. now and then *aysa sensible thing. 

In his last letter to the Jircutution, he bears 

down on the senseless folly of " pet names*' 

among women. He says : 

" 1 am saddened to nee women always set 
herself down at a discount. Man sneers 
woman down often, because woman lowers 
her own womanhood. Your meetings lose 
much of their force from the use of pet 
names among the speaker*. When men see 
Ihe nana- DJBte, Matlieand Kiltie. 

i!s them of little children eating bon- 
bons. How would the names of George 
Opdyke, Btevy Tvog, Charlie Sumner, I'ly 
Grant and Jim'my Bennett look in the report 
or a meeting* " 

As far as pet names for political women 
go, we agree with Georgo Francis Train 
thoroughly, but we cannot support tho 
Times in condemning " pet names among 
women " as "senseless folly." Of course 
women as they advance farther in politics 
will lose their pet names ; they won't 
stand petting of any kind; tbey will be- 
come "he women," and lose all the pretty 
silliness and nonsense which now renders 
them charming. If this Woman's Rights 
movement goes on, itmay possibly result io 
the female sex dyiog out and fioally be- 
coming extinct As these female reformers 
become more and more masculine tbey will 
"bring forth men-children, for their un- 
daunted metiie (brass?) should compose 
nothing but males." As to there beiog 
anything billy in such pet names hs 
"Lottie." "Minnie," "Kitty," "Jennie," 
etc, when applied to women who are true 
women, wo utterly deny the allegation and 
defy the "alligator."

Washing Fluid. 

No corrosive washing fluids, which born 
linen in holes and destroy it in a short time, 
are used at the What Cheer Laundry. Noth- 
ing but soap, water, and what is popularly 
termed '* elbow-grease," is employed, and 
consequently the gentlemen's shirts and 
other lurnishing goods, which are sold at 
such low prices at this establishment, last an 
immense lime if sent there to be washed. 



The Seasons. 

The Summer has passed away even in Cali- 
fornia, and Winter stands at the door. The 
earth is putting on her Winter garb and her 
inhabitants are also adopting a costume 
suited to the season. The fashionable men 
of San Francisco are flocking to the great 
clothing stores of J. R. Meade &, Co.. at the 
corners of Montgomery and Bush, and San- 
some and Washington, and purchasing those 
durable, fashionable Fall and Winter suits 
which he is now selling and will continue to 
sell for the next thirty days at such remarka- 
bly low prices.

Til* Rairlaff BIHowc, 

A little incident transpired «omc weeks ago 
at Wall's Optra Honaa, Waahhartan, 

during the representation of Font Pla%j. that 
1 to be loit. Jn*t aftfr tbe scut- 
tling of the ship, when tbe waves are anp- 
pneed to be rolling fiercely, and just at the 
critical moment wheu the hero is about being 
rescued from the watery deep, a lady in the 
orchestra exclaimed loul enough to be heard 
some distance off. " f wish they would stop 
shaking that rag, I can't see what they arc 
k there."' The labor* of the stage 
manager to produce startling mechanical 
effects were evidently lost at least upon one 
of the spectators. 

Virginia City 

Piper's Optra Hoose, in Virginia City, 
Nevada, is doing a good business. The com- 
pany consists or Miss Ella I, 3 Hue, who 
funambuhs rs, sings, dances and oc:i 
takes the place of end-man; Kilty o'Neil, 
Lizzie H tnnon, Kale Reynolds, Mollie Lowe, 
Katjr- LeConnte, A. Batuford, Charley 
Fthoades, Tummy Farmn, Lew. Parker, 
Sparrow, J. P. Taylor and Otto Bur- 
bank. Jimmy Murphy arrived ou Tuesday 
to join tbe company. Tuesday was " Ladies 
Night"— no smoking allowed and some of 
the jnk"s thinned down a little. The house 
was well filled. 

Traveling Company. 

A dramatic company— composed of the 
following artistes: Mis* Annie Lockhiirt, Mrs. 
Henry Kdwards, Messrs. W. IL Hamilton, 
Harry Brown, E. i'. M.-lvilk', John Torrence, 
Jr.,— left this city on Monday and played 
four nights in Tallejo, from which place they 
were to proceed to Napa and subsequently 
to S ■»noma. CUifriniia is becoming quite a 
protit.iblo " stamping ground " for theatrical 
companies.

The Examiner on Grnnt. 

These are not the exact words of the 
aminer, but represent the spirit of its 
, .itorials on Grant: 

in no more a Republic in the United 
A military despot will rale the cuui- 
try irith a rod of iron. Grant will scarcely 
dare to ignore the wishes aud opinions of 
nearly hair n million of white voters. The 
Badteala will find that they cannot conirol 
hi in as easily as they expect. Emperor 
Grant and his Coart of Radical thieves will 
reduce the Nation to bankruptcy. Wa hope 
and have foundation for the hope that Gen. 
Grant will appreciate Uie responsibilities of 

Bee lie i* about to lill, aud will cut

imagine he will aid them In enslaving the 
people. Hiram Dl/asee Grant, the longae-

will not forget bis early Democratic training.

was determined ho would not lose his 
temper, to bis lazy son, whom he was try-

RODQERS JOHNSON, 




THE GREAT SECRET, 

" How to secure the attention and affections 
of the opposite sex," Is solved by wearing the 
elegant boots made only by CiiAs. F.Howard, 
604 Kearny street. All those stylish boots 
which excited such general observation 
and admiration at the late ball were bis 
manufacture, and have been universally pro- 
nounced the most extraordinary combination 
or ease, elegance and fashion ever produced. 
They are made in exact conformity with the 
requirements of the anatomy of trie foot, thus 
securing to all who wear them perfect im- 
munity from corns and bunions, and to tender 
feet a luxurious sense of comfort unknown 
before. 

C. P. H. acknowledges, with feelings of 
prido and pleasure, the courtesy of several 
hundred ladies recently married, or engaged 
to be married, who have by letter gracefully 
and pratefully confessed that they attribute 
their present happiness to the elegant boots 
bought at No. 004 Kearny street. Beware of 
the spurious imitations which envious and 
nnprincipled vendors are attempting to palm 
off on the public as " the same article," etc., 
and which surely cripple the wearers sooner 
or later. The genuine article can only be ob- 
tained of Charles P. Howard, 60-1 Kearny 
street, second door north of Sacramento.

SAIL UNDER FALSE COLORS. 

THE BEST EVIDENCE OF THE VALUE OF 
au article rutty be found in tue fact of lis 
bavin? numerous imitat'rs. Every fine pcem 
has is parodies : evenmeretorious literary woik 
is sulject to pl.'garlsms; every FUcceFs'ul play 
has been burlesqued ; every faoneBt man has bis 
detractors ; every genuine dollar bHS been coun- 
terfeited ; and every valuable medicinal prepara- 
tion has it* vile imitations. The propiietors of 

DR. HEN LET'S 

WILD GRAPE ROOT l-X-L BITTERS 

Have encountered the usual experience in this 
respect. Such has been the success of this 
ster ing preparation, that all inferior snides of 
the kicd hiw virtually been driven from the 
market. The concoctors of tbe3e beverage!*, find- 
it g that this new Tonio lia' exactly met the pub- 
lic want, and that no further demand exiBts for 
inferior i<r' partition*, have resorted to the dis- 
honest expedient of imitating either the name 
or the sty e of label, both of which have been 
duly secured by the laws of the State to the 
proprietors ol tne I-X L Bitters. 

In justice to ourselves, enwell as to the public, 
who may be deceived by these nefarious prac- 
tices, we hereby notify all parties guilty of in* 
fricgement en our rights, ss well as those wfco 
hav« been buying up our old bottles in order to 
palm off their own nostrums as the genuine 
article, that they will be prosecnted to the lull 
extent of the law. 

For the further protection of consumers, we 
would state that we never sell our Bitters in bulk, 
but always by the case. Look for our Trade 
M^rk «n every bottle ; and in ordering the article 
otherwise thin direct from us, be sure to order 
"Dr. Hen'ey's "Wild Grjpe Root I-X-L Bilters," 
and don't allow yourself to be imposed upon

OF ALL THE GREAT CTJBIOSITIF8 WHICH 
attract the moot attention at the Mechanics' 
Fair, are the wonderful lmpiovements which are 
now attached to the well-known WHEELER ft 
WILSON 8EWING MACHINE, without the com 
pletian of the others. This is the only Family 
Sewing Machine with the new Silent Feed Motion. 
It makes one thousand button-holes per day, on 
linen, cotton or woolen goods. It sews on the 
binding ofadresB, without previous basting, in 
(our minutes; and while sewing on one tuck, 
makes the line of marks for another; gathers and 
sewes on at the same time; hems Bilk or woolen 
goods with equal faciliiy; cords and braids with 
surprising quickness; makes articles for aieu's as 
well as women's wear; takes two thousaud stitches 
per minute, which is fifteen hundred stitches 
more than any other lock-stitch can make. 

This wonderful machine has no shuttle to thread 
five or sir times before starting, which is a great 
saving of time. It Is a positive fact that WHEE- 
LER & WILSON'S FAMILY SEWING MA- 
CHINES will do all the same kind of work that 
the other machines now on sale will do — will 
make the same single thread loop-stitch that rav- 
els out; also the double loop-stitch, which ulso 
ravels out very conveniently, because you can 
sew with one yard of thread all day long, Bewing 
in your thread, then raveling It and sewing it i ; 
again, and so un — all right, and very coavenientn 
but you will find that the same WHEELER & 
WILSON FAMILY SEWING MACHINE that does 
all these wonuerful inings, makes also the only 
straight, solid lock-stitch which cannot be raTeled 
perfectly safe to walk to church with clothing 
made with this stitch; also this machine will 
make the three thread embroidery stitch, which 
is the loop-stitch and lock-stitch combined, and 
forms the most beautiful omameDtal finish, per- 
fectly secure against raveling, and very durable. 
The AarxBiCAM Ikbixiutz, New York, reporta : 
" This Machine makes the 

LOCK STITCH, 
and ranks highest on account of thB elasticity 
permanence, beauty and general desirableness of 
application." 

This report was In accordance with the previ- 
ous^ — the stitchlugwhen done, and the wide range 
of its awards at the Fair of the United Slates 
Agricultural Society, at the Fairs of the 
Americuu Institute, New York ; 
Mecbuuics' Association, Bottoo ; 
Franklin Institute, Philadelphia; 
Kentucky Iust'tute. Baltimore; 
Mechanics' Association, CincirJisti ; 
MechLinics' Association, St. Louis ;

The battle-fields of Napoleon I. were scarcely 
mT-e numerous than the foreign contests of the 
Wheeler & Wdson Sewing Machines. Paris in 
1661, London 1863, Linz and Ecenigsburg 1863, 
Lantzic, Agram and Krema 1864, aud Dublin, 
Stettin, Cologne and Wicmar 1866, bear testimony 
to the superiority of this Machine and ita appre- 
ciation abroad. At all these Intern >tional Exhi- 
bitions the best fruits of foreign renins were 
arrayed agains-t it, backed by national amour 
propre; but there, as here, the star of its destiny 
is always in the ascendant. 

Indeed, no human testimony could be strongei 
than that which baB been accorded this Machine 
for supt riority over all otherB for family use and 
for general manufacturing purposes. 

We can now supply our customers with Stod 
dard'f Patent Tuck Maker for the Wheeler & Wil- 
son Machine only, one of the moEt useful at'Bsh- 
ments for the Machine ever invented, which 
while the Machine is sewing one tuck, makes ih* 
line of marks for the next. 

8y This Tuck Marker was awarded the Fiksi 
Pkemtcm at the great State Fair held in Sacra- 
mento, 1867, over all competitors. 

These Machines are specially adapted for the 
use of farmers, beinjr able to Few Brain sacks and 
heavy clothing with the same facility as the usual 
family work— making a more durable seam— not 
Uabl« to ravel, as la the case of the lorp or 
chain stith.

Tr*> 'ItiiST th© X»u.l»llc Badly. 

We da not think that J. A. Heme has 
any cause to complain of not haviojj been 
well-treated by the public of San Fran- 
cisco. His engagement at Maguire's Opera 
House, wh:re he played all his best parts, 
was a very successful one, and if he was 
not equally successful at the Metropolitan 
Theatre, the reason was that he had noth- 
ing worth seeiDg left to present, and played 
in trashy pieces. Therefore we must blame 
hiin for baviog on Saturday offered a direct 
insult to the public which had treated him 
generously. On Friday evening, J. A. 
Herno took a benefit, and but little pre- 
liminary announcement having been made, 
and no pains whatever having been taken 
to "work it up," resulted in his playing 
"Rip Van Winkle" to an almost empty 
house. His "last appearances" were ad- 
verted for Saturday afternoon and even- 
ing, when he was to appear in Rip Van 
. Hory O'Moore, and The Jibbtnano- 
tay. He gave the management no intima- 
tion of hiB intention to bolt his engagement, 
but on Saturday afternoon failed to make 
his appearance and the audience had to be 
dismissed, receiving their money back. In 
the evening he also, i:i spile of bis name 
appearing oa the bill iu two pieces, refused 
to fulfill the promise thus made to the pub- 
lic. It was not worth Mr. Heme's while, 
if the season ut the Metropolitan Theatre 
was an unsuccessful one, to close it thus 
discreditably. We never attempt to drag 
the private foibles of actors before the pub- 
lic, or publish the scandal of the green- 
room; but when an nctor deliberately 
breaks fuith with the public it comes within 
our province to speak of the act in the 
terras of disapproval which it merits. 



COMMENDABLE LENIENCY. 

The Times publishes a story about a 
prisoner running away from the galleys at 
ToulouBe, taking refugo in a cottage where 
the people were in great distress, beiug 
about to be turned out for not paying their 
rent, and making the father of the family 
take bim back to the galleys and thus re- 
ceive a reward of fifty francs, which would 
relieve him from his distress. The Mayor 
to whom the prisoner was delivered was so 
charmed with his generous conduct, that he 
wrote to the Minister of Justice begging 
his release. This pretty story concludes 
thus: 

The Minister examined into the affair, and, 
finding t! at it was coraparativtly a small 
offence which had condemned the yonog 
man to the galleys, and that he had already 
served out hid time, ordered bis release. 

As the offence was a small one, and the 
youog man had already served out his time, 
we think the leniency of the Minister was 
very commendable. This story would be 
more complete if, "and as he never com- 
mitted the offence," were added to these 
reasons for releasing him. 



Stockton Eng;lIsH. 

The Stockton Gazette uses a little worse 
English than the Alia. Witness the fol- 
lowing 

How Thet DoseTt.— The Augusta (Ga.) 
Chronicle says the Radicals n.=ed forged Con- 
gressi' nal franks with which to distribute 
tbeir electioneering documents in that State 
during the last campaign— and that when 
not one Republican in six hundred could 
read. 

They done it that way, eh ? We are 

glad the Gazette has told us the way it was 

did. 



Wouldn't Suit Her. 

The Review says: 

So far from feeling illy-disposed toward 
Lucille Western is the Aluambra manage- 
ment that tbey offer to place their house at 
her service if she wishes to take a benefit 
there for nothing. 

The fact is, that Miss Lucille Western 
doesn't wish " to take a benefit there for 
nothing;" when she does, she will let 
Badger know. 



A. "Plorenee" Sewing; Machine 
la a family, will earn its weight in gold be- 
fore it becomes worn out. Then, what pres- 
ent could be so economical or so gratefully 
received on Christmas day as a " Florence" 
machine. Mr. Hill, the agent, will take or- 
ders at the depot, No. Ill Montgomery street, 
pick yon out a perfect machine— warrant it 
for five years, and agree to repair it gratu- 
tiously if needed— and deliver the same to 
any address in the city promptly on Christ- 
mas morning. *

horror-struck at the treacherous act, the neto 
made bride meets with Marcel, who baa con- 
Bealed himself that he may be present at the 
duel, and to hiin she imparts, the intentions 
ol his master's opponents: tturcel remains on 
. being anable to meet hJa master 
;md inlorm him of the plot. At the ap- 
pointed time the conibtttaiits meet — Kaoul 
and Marcel are attacked by a party of armed 
men, but a hand of Protestants, trdm an 
adjoining tavern, rush in to their asai lance, 
and the d tttie beoomei Keneral, until UargO' 
ret de Valots enters on boreebaofa and

e the intended trea ion of which he wna 
ted by Valentine who, at that instant 
appears at the chapel gate, and St. Bns, 
teai ibg oil her veil, is. thunder struck at seeing 
lagUter. 

liiioul at the same moment learns that Val- 
entine loved him alone, but at tins instant l»u- 
Movers enters to lead his undo home, a.1 
night the unhappy lovers repair secretly to 
De. Nevers' ohatBau, and obtain an interview 
with Valentine, but on the entrance of her 
hu -hand and father he conceals himself, and 
overhears a plot to massacre the Whole of tile 
Protestants; to assist in this all sweat', ex- 
cepting De Nevers, who is placed under 
arrest by the rest of the conspirators. 

As soon as the Catholic Lords have parted, 
Baoul prepares to leave the chateau and 
proceeds to warn his friends, but at length, 
persuaded by Valentine, who cliogs to him 
and declares her love, he consents to remain, 
but when he hears the signal for the massacre, 
he tears himself from her arms and rushes out* 

Meanwhile the Protestants Lords are 
assembled at the Hotel de yens, at the In- 
vitation of Margarot and Benry the iv. In 
the midst of then' revels Kaoul rushes in, pale 
and with bloody garments, and Informs them 
of the massacre, which has commenced on 
on the opposite banks of the river: the whole 
assembly at once draw their swords and rush 

oir the stage. 

Marcel, wounded, points out to a body 
of Huguenot women a chapel of refuge ; Val- 
entine Oflers pardon to Kaoul in the Queen's 
name, if he will adopt her laith, hut on his 
refusal she agrees to become a Protestant, 
and De Nevers having perished in an en- 
deavor to save the life of old Marcel, the 
unhappy pair pledge their troth and pre 
married on the spot. 

A loud cry is now heard In the church, 
during the massacre of the women; nt the 
same iut.tant Several murderers ru h on the 
Stage and attack Marcel, Itaoul, and Valen- 
tine and drag them oil' the stage.

We have received the first number of a 
er called The San Francisco Journal. 
It i? :ifihed at Uaguire'a Opera House, 
a will not be allowed to circu- 
late there, ' Figaro " having that privilege 
exclusively. The Journal is one of ibe 
most cotrplete papers we have ever seeo, 
and marks a new era in journalism on the 
Ptcific coast On the first page ia the com- 
mencement of a highly sensation d romince, 
beautifully illustrated with an engraving of 
a thrilliug scene. The story breaks off, of 
course, at the mrst interesting part, and is 
"to be contained." Then we have " Special 
igence about the Pacific 
Railroad, Poetry, " Wu and Wisdom," 
"Local Intelligence" — which beats Fitz- 
Emytht'- romances in the Alta 

out of sight; "•The Last Sensation,'' "Tlie- 
nteUigenee," "Answers 
to Correspondents." as instructive and 
amusing as those of the Weekly ATeFCurp, 
nod two columns of miverti-ements under 
the headings of "Personals," "Wants,'' 
rfinleD," "Steamboat*/ 1 " Fiuan- 
Vial," and " Amusements." " Figaro " 
has no petty feelings of jealousy, holds out 
it hand uf fellowship to the Journal, 
and is glad to see iu a fvcriisiog columns 
present so proaperona an appearance. 
Specimen copies of the Journal may be 
Obtained gratis on applying at the publica- 
tion office, 61t> aud SIS Washington street.

THE GREAT SECRET, 

" How to secure the attention and affections 
of tUe opposite sex," is solved by weariog the 
elegant boots made only byCiiAs. F. Howard, 
004 Kearny street. All those stylish boots 
which excited such general observation 
and admiration at the late ball were bis 
manufacture, and have been universally pro- 
nounced the most extraordinary combination 
of ease, elegance and fashion ever produced. 
They are made in exact conformity with the 
requirements of the anatomy of the foot, thus 
securing to all who wear them perfect im- 
munity from corn? and bunions, aud to tender 
feet a luxurious sense of comfort unknown 
before. 

C. F. H. acknowledges, with feelings of 
pride and pleasure, the courtesy of several 
hundred ladies recently married, or engaged 
to be married, who have by letter gracefully 
and rratefully confessed that they attribute 
their present happiness to the elegant boots 
hooght nt No. C04 Kearny street. Beware of 
the spurious imitations which envious and 
unprincipled vendors are attempting to palm 
off on the public as " the same article,'' etc., 
and which purely cripple the wearers sooner 
or later. The genuine article can only be ob- 
tained of Charles F. Howard, 004 Kearny 
street, second dour north of Sacramento.

SAIL UNDER FALSE COLORS. 

THE BEST EVIDENCE OF THE VALUE OF 
au aniclo may be found iu tho fact of its 
baviuff numerous imitators. Ewry fine poem 
has i's parodies : even meretorious literury woi k 
is subject to plagarism.-" ; every socces&'nJ pUy 
has been burlesqued ; every honest man has his 
detractors ; every geuuine dolltir ban been coun- 
terfeited ; and every va'uable medicinal prepara- 
tion has its vile imitations. The propiietois of 

DR. HENLEY'S

respect. Such has beea tbe success of this

d g thtt this new Tuuij ha* exactly met the pub- 
lic want, and that no further demaud exists lor

honest exprditriit of imitntiug either the name 
or the sty e of label, both of which have been 
duly secured by the laws of the State to tho 
proprietors ol tne I-X L Bittern. 

In justice to onsselraa. aeweU as to the public,

WHEELER & WILSON'S 



EIGHEST rREHIVll 



SEWING MACHINE 



OF ALL THE GREAT CURI09ITIF.8 WHICH 
attract the moat attention at tbe Mechanics' 
Fair, are the wonderful improvements which are 
now attached to tho well-known WHEELER & 
WILSON SEWTNG MACHINE, without the com 
pletion of the others. This is the only Family 
Sewing Machine with the new Silent Feed Motion. 
It makes one thousand button-holes per day, on 
linen, cotton or woolen goods. It sews on the 
binding of a dress, without previous basting, In 
four minutes; and while suwing on one tuck, 
makes tbe line of marks for another; gathers and 
sewes on at the same time; hems silk or woolen 
goods with equal facility; cords and braids with 
surprising quickuess; makcB articles for men's as 
well as women's wear ; takes two thousand stitches 
per minute, which is fifteen hundred stitches 
more than any other lock, stitch can make. 

Thia wondurf ul machine has no shuttle to thread 
five or six times before starting, which is a great 
saving of time. It is a positive fact that WHEE- 
LER & WILSON'S FAMILY SEWING MA- 
CHINES will do all the same kind of work that 
the other machiues now on sale will do — will 
make the same single thread loop-stltch that rav- 
els out; also the double loop-stitch, which also 
ravels out very conveniently, because you can 
sew with one yard of thread all day long, stwlng 
in your thread, then raveling it and sewing it i ; 
avain. and eo on— all right, and very coDvenientn 
but you will find that the same WHEEXER & 
WILSON FAMILY SEWING' MACHINE that does 
all these wonaerful thinps, makes also the only 
straight, solid lock-stitch which cannot be raveled 
perfectly Bafe to walk to church with clothing 
made with this stitch; also this machine will 
make the three thread embroidery stitch, which 
Is the loop>stitch and lock-sliuh combined, and 
forms the most beautiful ornamental finish, per- 
fectly secure agaioBt raveling, and very durable. 
The Amebicajt Ikbhtdte, Now York, reports : 
This Machine makes the 

LOCK STITCH, 
and ranks highest on account of the elasticity 
permaueucc, beauty and general desirableness of 
application." 

This report was in accordance with the provi* 
ous — the stitchlrjgwhen done, and the wide range 
uf its awards at the Fair ol the Uuited States 
Agricultural Society, at the F-irs of tbe 
American Institute, New York ; 
Mechanics' Association, Boston ; 
Franklin Institute, Philadelphia ; 
Kentucky Institute. Baltimore ; ■ 
Mechanics' Association, Cinci^iisitl ; 
Mechanics' Association, St. Louis ; 
Mechanics' IUFtltute, San Francisco ; 
Metropoliuin Mecbanics'Institute, Washington.

Vermont, Mississippi, Iliim>in,

And at hundreds of Country Fairs. 

The battle-nelds of Napoleon I. were scarcely 
ru<- rr numerous than the foreign contests of the 
Wheeler & WiIbou Sewing Machines. Paris in 
1861, London 1863, Linz and Kcenigsburg 1863, 
Damzic, Agram and Krcma 1804. aud Dublin, 
Stettin, Cologne and Wieniar 18ti6, hear testimony 
to tbe superiority of this Macbiue and it- appre- 
ciation abroad. At all thexe Intern tional Exhi- 
bitions the best fruits of foreign genius were 
arrayed agaim-t it, backed by national amour 
propre ; but there, as here, the »tar of its destiny 
is always in tbe ascendant. 

Indeed, no human testimony could be stronger 
thun that which bas been accorded liii- Machine 
for suppriority over all others for family use and 
for general manufacturing purposes. 

We can now supply our customers with StoA 
dard's Patent Tuck MJier for the Wheeler & Wil- 
son Machine only, one of the rood useful atiauh- 
metti for the Machine ever invented, which 
while the Macbiue is sewing one tuck, makes th* 
line of marks for the next. 

ilS"Thia Tuck Marker was awarded the Fms5 
Fqeuiux nt the great State Fair held in Sacra* 
mento, 1867, overall competitors. 

These Machioes are specially adapted for the 
use of fsrmTS, being able to sew v.raiu sacks and 
heavy clothing with the same facility as the tiBuai 
family work — making a more durable seam — not 
liable to ravel, as is the case of the loop or 
chain Btit.h. 

»-For Family Sewlne, Tailors, Seamstresses.

given to the Wheeler & Wilson Ma^iine'orer

Highest Premium at the In tnrnaiional Exhibition 
London, lSfi3, and the First Premium at to*

CHILD SUFFRAGE. 
The Deseret (Salt Lake) Xews says that 
the question of woman suffrage has long 
been settled ic Utah, women having an 
equal right to rote with men. It is now 
in favor oT allowing children to vote. Why 
Dot? Ie the white American boy of twelve 
or thirteen years of age, who has supported 
himself by his own labor for perhaps two 
or tared years, who is a constant reader of 
newspapers and is thoroughly posted on 
the political issues of the day — is such ad 
one less ill to be trusted with a vote than 
the brutal field hand of the South, whose 
iolellect is but little superior to that of a 
dog? Who dare say that the intelligent 
American hoy, born on tho soil and 
educated in the politics of his country, 
would not vote more intelligently than an 
Irishman who can neither reed nor write, 
or the foreigner who cannot read the lan- 
guage in which tho laws are made ? Give 
the boys a chance. The American boy at 
twelve is equal in intelligence and general 
knowledge of the politics of his country to 
the full-grown man of most European 
countries. Any one who, duriug the late 
campaign, listened to the political discus- 
sions so rife among our San Francisco 
boys, most confess the truth of this. If 
the negroes are to vote and the women are 
to vote, then the boys should vote. "We 
are sure that if childhood suffrage were 
once agitated ti.e boys would vigorously 
urge their claim to the suffrage. The boys 
would have, hewever, an element of weak- 
ness iu their party, if they formed one. 
Their leaders could not remain boys, and 
would probably, when in course of time 
tbey became men, and thus gained the 
privilege for which tbey battled in their 
youth, turn a cold shoulder on those whom 
they left still fighting for the cause. They 
would say, '-let them wait as 1 did." 
Such is the innate selfishness of the human 
race. 
■A-rt. 

There are surely a sufficient number of 
wealthy people iu San Francisco with a 
taste for art, aud people of taste who know 
how cheap really good pictures always are 
to afford encouragement to the artists now 
with us, Tl.is evening, at Duncan's Auction 
room,some really finelandscapesaud marine 
views will be sold, aDd we hope many cf 
them will bring good prices. There are 
pictures by atarple, Arriola, Bush, Young, 
Denny, Holdredge, Brooke^, Walker and 
Wilson, and many of ihem are fine works 
of art One by Young, a forest scene, is a 
perfect little gem.

Veiy Smart. 
The dramatic critic of the Review is a 
-t genius; he thus satirizes the Cait. 
-marks that it says "that the new 
tenor, Armes Beaumont, has ' a very fine 
voice and excellent school.' The Call is 
half correct. Mr. Beaumont is add 
tiie posses-ior of a fiuo voxe, but U4 iflp'l 
a pedagogue, and has no 'school' at j»re^ 
etit." Doesu't the unfortunate backwoo'i* 
critic know* that a vocalist's "BCbool 
'[uently spoken of? Iffs are sure that critic 
bad an oxoelleoi 

jr |)e bad auy at all. From his stjw> 
should imagine he learned 
to read from sign boards and labels, aud 
finally advanced to reading the dicl.onary 
and learning " hard Words " bj ho.ri. His 
style is somewhat like that of a writer in 
ii p«per who ftttelj said of Mrs. 
iijus, that "as far as personal pul- 
chritude is concerned, the iady is an iodu- 

Mafflc Learning. 

We thought that the belief In magic, 
formerly prevalent, was now extinct; hut 
ibe Sutter Banner gravely mokes the fol- 
lowing Statement, which is more wonderful 
than most fairy tales : 

A universal alphabetical piano, on which 

children can be taught instantaaeoo>ly to 

read, to calculate and 10 play music, costing 

. ;ie* only, is sold En Pans. 

This must be a magical instrument, in- 

. tteb will tench c^iMren to reud, 

tte and pUy music instantaneously.

PIRATES 

SAIL UNDER FALSE COLORS. 

fT»HE BEST EVIDENCE OF THE VALUE OF 
X aa aniclu may be lonnd in the fact of ite- 
huving numerous imitabrs. Every nne p^em 
has i'S parodies : even meretorious literary woik 
is subject to plBgarisms ; every juccpj-s'uI play 
has bten builesqued ; eveiy honest mau h«s his 
detractors ; every genuine dollar has been coun- 
terfeited ; and every valuable medicinal prepara- 
tion has its vile imitations. The prop] ietors of 

DR. HENLEY'S 

WILD GRAPE ROOT l-X-L BITTERS 

Have encountered the usual experience in this 
respect. Such has been the succcbs of this 
etcriiny yrtparjtion, that all inferior ariicles of 
the kicd hava virtually been driven from the 
market. The coucoctors of these bevtr»ge-», fiod- 
ii g that this new Tu&ij ha-* exactly met tbe pub- 
lic want, and that no further demand exists !or 
inferior pr paration°, have resoited to the dis- 
honest expedient of imititing either ihe name 
or the sty e of label, both of which have been 
duly secured by tie laws of the State to the 
proprietors of tne I-X L Hitters. 

In justice to ourselves, at well as to the public, 
who may be deceived by these nefarious prac- 
tices, we hereby notify all parties guilty of in- 
fringement en our rights, as well as thot-e wlo 
have been buying up our old hottles in order to 
palm off their own nostiums as the genuine 
article, that they will be prosecuted to the lull 
*xtent of the Uw. 

For the further protection of consumers, wo 
would Btate that we never sell our Hitttrs in bulk, 
but always by the case. Lock for our Trade 
M^rk en every bottle ; aud in ordering the article 
otherwise than direct frum lis, oe sure to order 
"Dr. Htn'ey's Wild Grape Root I-X-L Bitters," 
and don't allow yourself to be imposed upon 
witb an inferior article.

WHEELER & WILSON'S 

HIGHEST 1'IIEMIVM 

SEWING MACHINE 



OF ALL THE GREAT CURIOSITIES WHICH 
attract the most attention at the Mechanics' 
Fair, are the wonderful impiovements which are 
now attached to the well-known WHEELEK & 
WILSON SEWING MACHINE, without the com 
pletion of the others. This is tbe only Family 
Sewing Machine with the new Silent Feed Motion. 
It makeri one thousand button-holes per day, on 
Jiuen, cotton or woolen goods. It sews on the 
binding ofadrese, without previous baBting, in 
four minutes; and while sewing on one tuct, 
makes the line of marks for another; gathers and 
Bewes on at the Bame time; hems silk or woolen 
goode with equal facility: cords and braids with 
surprising quickness; makes articlesfor men's zb 
well »3 women's wear ; takes two tnouBand stitches 
per minute, whu-h is fifteen hundred Btitches 
more than any other lock-stitch can make, 

Xhii wonderful machine has no shuttle to thread 
five or six times before starting, which is a great 
saying of time. It is a positive, fact that WHEE- 
LER & WILSON'S FAMILY SEWING MA- 
CHINES will do all the same kind of work that 
the other machines now on sale will do — will 
make the same single thread loop-stitch that rav- 
els out; also the double loop-stitch, which also 
ravels out very conveniently, because you can 
sew with one yard of thread all day long, Bewing 
in your thread, then raveling itand sowing it i ; 
again, aiid so on — all right, and very coovenientn 
but you will find that the some WHEELER & 
WILSON FAMILY SEWING MACHINE that does 
all these wonaerful things, makes also the only 
straight, solid lock-stitch which cannot be raveled 
perfectly safe to walk to church with clothing 
made with this btitch; also this machine will 
make the three thread embroidery stitch, which 
is the loop-stitch and lock-stitch combined, and 
forms the most beautiful ornamental finish, per- 
fectly secure against raveling, and very durable. 
The Ahemcan Institute, New York, reports : 

" This Machine makes the 

LOCK STITCH, 
and ranks highest on account of the" elasticity 
permanence, beauty aud general desirableness of 
application." 

ThiB report was in accordance with the previ- 
ous — the stitching when done, and the wide range 
vi its awards at the Fair of the United States 
Agricultural Society, at the Ffciis of the 

American Institute, New York ; 

Mechanics' Aatiociution, Botton ; 

Franklin Institute, Philadelphia ; 

Kentucky Institute. Baltimore ; 

Mechanics' Association, Cincinnati ; 

Mechanics' Association, St. Louis ; 

Mechanics' Iufititute, San Francisco ; 

Metropolitan Mechanics'Institute, Washington. 

AT THE STATE fAIBS OP 

Maine, Virginia, Tennessee, 

Vermont, Mississippi, Illinois, 

Conucctlcut, Missouri, Kentucky, 

New Yoi'k, Ohio, Michigan, 

New Jersey, Indiana, Wisconsin, 

Iowa, Pennsylvania, California, 

And at hundreds of Country Fairs, 
The battle-fields of Napoleon I. were scarcely 
mrre numerous than the foreign contests of the 
Wheeler it Wilson Sewing Machines. Paris in 
1H61, London 1862, Linz and Koenigsburg 1S68, 
Dantzic, Agram and Kxcma 1864, a«d Dublin, 
Stettiu, Cologne and Wiemar 1865, bear testimony 
to the superiority of this Machine end its i ppre- 
ciution abroad. At all these Intern -tional Kxhi- 
bitions the best fruits of foreign genius were 
arrayed again&t if, backed by national amour 
propre; but there, as here, the star of its destiny 
is always in the ascendant. 

Indeed, no human testimony could be strongei 
than that which has been accorded ihia Machine 
for supi riority over all others for family use and 
for general manufacturing purposes. 

We can now enpply our customers with Stod 
dard's Patent Tuck Maker for the Wheeler & Wil- 
son Machine only, one of the mott useful attach- 
ments for the Machine ever invented, which 
while the Machine is Bowing one tuck, makes ths 
line of marks for the next. 

By This Tuck Marker was awarded the Fibss 
Pbemtum nt the great State Fair held in Sacr*- 
mento, 1867, over all competitors. 

These Machines are specially adapted for ths 
use of farmers, beinjr able to sew grain sacks and 
heavy clothing with the same facility as the usual 
family work— making a more durable seam— not 
liable to ravel, as is the case of the lorp or 
chain st.t h. 

•y For Family Sowing, Tailors, SeainBtresses, 
Drtss-Mukern, Cloak-Makers, Corset- Makers, tor 
stitching Gaiters. Hats and Citps.the WH.ELER 
& WILSON Machines are acknowledged to be 
the best.

Machines, wi'h Glasn Presser, Improved Loop- 
Check, New Style Hemmer, Binder, Corder

The Highest Premium (Gold Medal) awarded at 
the Great World'e Exposition at Parin, 1-67, wai 
given to the Wheeler & Wileon Machine over 
all others. This Machine also reoelTfi the 
Highest Premium at the International ExUi ion, 
London, 1863, and the First Premium a tb» 
Mechanics Fair, San Francisco, 1867.

The as^erli .-Q of Uio Dramatic Beviw, 

that it is the programme- of the Metropoli- 
tao Theatre, is made for the purpose of 
inducing the public to advertise in ita 
columns. Wiih tender regard for the 
public we would inform them that the 
Review is ti'-t allowed within the walls of 
the Metropolitan Theatre, and those who 
advertise in the Review with the object of 
briDgiug their business bef <re the audiences 
present at this place of amusement during 
the opera season will be deceived. The 
Review is the programme for the Circus and 
the Alhambra, and justly considering that 
the fjet ot its circulating in these places of 
amusement a!'*ue would not induce rainy 
persons to advertise in it, j'abtfy asserts 
that it is the boott programme of the 
Metropolitan Theatre, with a view to 
deceiviu^ those who are not theatre-goers 
into patronizing it.

TiCED SYMPATHY. 
The papers generally find fault with the 
verdict of manslaughter brought in against 
Thomas Brookbank f or killing John Palmer, 
and say, "of course the 6overo6r will par- 
don him." Judge Sawyer has Inilicted the 
lowest penalty allowed by tho.law — one 
year's imprisonment in the Sta to Prison. The 
circumstances attendant on tba 'killing of 
Palmer by Brookbank, as elicited at the 
trial, were these : Thomas Brookbank had 
left his wife, whom he suspected of infidel- 
ity. He was quite right iu this; if she 
didu't lovo him it was better he should 
leare her. He was not C0"teot with this, 
however. lie suspected that his deserted 
wife loved some- one else, and arming him- 
self, lay in wait to surprise her and kill the 
man she loved. The law does not allow 
this. lie found John Palmer in her room, 
and with the weapon be had purchnsed for 
the purpose, killed bim. Many will say he 
was quite right in doing so, but the law, 
admitting tbe provocation, says that having 
taken the law into his own hands he most 
suffer the consequences of his unlawful 
act It is possible that Mrs. Brookbank 
was not guilty of any criminal act ; that 
John Palmer knowing her husband to 
have deserted her, vHied her in her lone- 
liness, with no design against that hus- 
band's hooor. Whatever bis motives, the 
law does not hold that he was deserving of 
punishment of death, and until the law 
makes improper intercourse with another 
man's wife punishable by death and in- 
flicts that punishment itself, it should 
take means to prevent its being inflicted 
by others. A very good means of prevent- 
ing husbands, who have left their wives, 
from "laying for" the men who have sup- 
plied their place in their wives' affections, 
and killing them, will be lo let Thomas 
Brookbank serve out bis term of one year 
in the State Prison. He has had the satis- 
faction of ''avenging his honor ;" surely that 
is worth something. iHt is not worth a 
year's imprisonment, then other injured 
husbands will take some other means of 
getting even. Tbey will take the matter a 
little more cool'y; will find out whether ihe 
"iufamous betrayer'' has taken any unfair 
advantage of them, whether they are them- 
selves to blnme at all, or whether Mrs. Poti- 
pher was not perhaps very much to blame. 
Really we don't think a year's imprison- 
ment will hurt Mr. Brookbank, and it may 
bave a very good effect. It may prevent 
Potiphars from shooting innocent Josephs 
just as they are about to run away from 
Mrs. Potiphars. It it hardly worth while 
lo suffer a year's imprisonment for the sake 
of a woinau who has ceased to love you, 
but it is quite worth one's wliilo to shoot 
a man and become a hero, if one can get 
off scot free.

THE GREAT SECRET, 

" How to secure the attention and affections 
of the opposite sex," Is soWed by wearing the 
elegant boots made only bj Chas. F. Howard, 
604 Kearny street. All those stylish boots 
which excited such general observatlun 
and admiration at the late ball were hJ3 
manufacture, and hSTe been universally pro- 
noauced the roost extraordinary combioation 
of ease, elegaoce and fashion ever produced. 
They are made in exact conformity with the 
requirements of the anatomy of the foot, thus 
securing to all who weai them perfect im- 
munity from corns and bunions, and to tender 
leut a luxurious aundo of comfort unknown 
before. 

C. F. II. acknowledge*, with feelinga or 
pride and pleasure, the courtesy of several 
hundred ladfcf recently marri- d. or engaged 
U» be married, who have by lutt'.-r grace-fully 
and prau-iulty conft-'^ed that they attribute 
their prtsent li::i"i>iin.-^ tn the elegant boots 
&6V&H at No. iKM rtearriy street. Beware of 
the spurious initiations which envious and 
unprincipled vendors are attempting to palm 
00 "ll Die pubhc as *• tUe :>:iuiu arliuje,'' etc., 
and which surely cripple the wearers sooner 
or later. Tho genuine arwra can only be ob- 
tained of Ghakmw P. Howard, 604 Kearny

THE BEST EYIDENOE OF THE VALUE OF

WHEELER & WILSON'S 



HIGHEST PSEMICM 



SEWING MACHINE 



OF ALL THE GREAT CURIOSITIES WHICH 
attract the most attention at the Mechanics' 
Fair, are the wonderful ioiprovemeutB which are 
now attached to tho well-known WHEELER & 
WILSON SEWINCt MACHINE, without the com 
pletlon of the others. This is the only Family 
Sewing Machine with the new 8ilent Feed Motion. 
It makes one thonaand button-holes per day, on 
linen, cotton or woolen goods. It sews on the 
binding of a dress, without previous basting, in 
four minutes; and while sewing on one tuck, 
makes the line of marks for another; gathers and 
sewes'on atttie same time; hems silk or woolen 
goods with equal facili'y; cords and braids with 
surprising quicknesA; makes articles for men's as 
well as women's wear; takes two thousand stitches 
per minute, which is fifteen hundred stitches 
more than any other lock-stitch can make. 

This wond.rf ul machine has no shuttle to thread 
five or six timeB before starting, which is a great 
saving of time. It is a positive fact that WHEE- 
LER L WILSON'S FAAlLLY SEWING MA- 
CHINES will do all the same kind of work that 
the other machines now on sale will do — will 
make the same single thread loop-stitch that rav- 
els out; also the double loop-stitch, which also 
ravels out very conveniently, because yon can 
sew with one yard of thread al! day long, sewing 
in your thread, then raveling it and sewing It i ; 
again, aDd so on — all right, and very convenientn 
but you will find that the same WHEELER & 
WLLSON FAMILY SEWING MACHINE that docs 
all these wonaexful things, makes also the only 
straight, solid lock-stitch which cannot be raveled 
perfectly safe to walk to church with clothing 
made with this stitch; also this machine will 
make the three thread embroidery stitch, which 
is the loop-siitch and lock-stitch combined, and 
forms: the most beautiful ornamental finish, per- 
feotly secure ogaioBt raveling, and very durable. 
The AJsiEBiCAX Institute, New York, reports : 
" This Machine mukes the 

LOCK STITCH, 
and ranks highest on account of the elasticity 
permanence, beauty and general desirableness of 
application." 

This report was In accordance with the previ- 
ou6^ — the stitching when done, and the wide range 
uf its awards at the Fair of the United States 
Agricultural Society, at the Fairs of the 
American Institute, New York ; 
Mechanics' Association, I3otton ; 
Franklin Institute, Philadelphia ; 
Keot Mc-lsy Institute. Baltimore ; 
Mechanics' Association, Cinci^ji&tl ; 
Mechanics' Association, St. Louis ; 
Mechanics' Institute, San Fraucisco ; 
Metropolitan Mechanics' Institute, Washington.

The battle-fields of Napoleon I,' were scarcely 
m^re numerous than the foreign contests of the 
Wheeler & WUsou Sewing Machines. Paris in 
1 tst.il, London 1863, Linz und Ecenigeburg 186S, 
Dautzio, Agram and Krema 1864, and Dublin, 
Stettin, Cologne and Wieniar IStiS, bear testimony 
to the superiority of this Machine and its tppre- 
ciation abroad. At all these International Exhi. 
bltions the best fruits of foreign genius were 
arrayed against it, backed by national amour 
propre ; but there, as here, the star of its destiny 
is always in the ascendant. 

Indeed, no human testimony could be stronget 
than that which has been accorded this Machine 
for superiority over all others for family use and 
for general manufacturing purposes. 

We oan now Bupply pur customers with Stod 
dard's Patent Tuck Maker for the Wheeler & Wil- 
eon Machine only, one of the most useful attach- 
ments for the Machine ever invented, which, 
while the Machine is sewing one tuck, makes th« 
line of marks for the next. 

•^"This Tuck Marker was awarded the Ftbss 
PnEMTLTM at the great State Fair held in Sacra- 
mento, 1867, over all competitors. 

These Machines are specially adapted for the 
use of farmers, being able to sew grain sacks and 
heavy clothing with the same facility as the usual 
family work— making a more durable seam — not 
liable to ravel, as ia tho case of the Iocd or 
chain stit.h. 

»y For Family Sewing, Tailors, Seamstresses. 
Dress-Makers, Cloak-Makers, Corset-Mikera. for 
stitcbins QatterB, Hats and Caps, the WHVELER 
k WILSON Machines are acknowledged to be 
the best.

Cliil.l Suffivgo. 

On Monday, iu an article on "Child 
Suffrage," we expressed the opinion that 
the intelligent boys of America were cer- 
tainly as fit to be entrusted with the power 
of voting as the ignorant negroes of the 
South and other full-grown men. From 
the following, which we clip from the Cin- 
cinnati Gaz'Me, it appears that Gen. Grant 
holds the same opinion : 

Win!'* in New York a friend of the Gen- 
eral':-, in .'companied by a son of some six 
years, called upun him. The little fellow 
had arranged a few words to say if the Gen- 
eral should notice him. In its brevity it 
bore a striking resemblance to the efforts of 
Grant himself. It was This : " Genenil, I am 
a Republican, and am very sorry I could not 
you." To this Grant replied: "Well, 
my iittle'man. you had just as good a right 
as many who did vote." 

• 

French and l£ii(£llsli. 

Truly, f entente cordiale exUts at present 
between the Euglish and French. Waerloo 
is forgotten and perjide Albion ib an obso- 
lete phrase. The English channel has been 
bridged by means of steam, and English- 
men and Frenchmen are at least cousins. 
How heartily did Le National of this city 
urge all Frenchmen to attend the benefit of 
the British Beuevolent Society, aud thus 
join with it in the good work of helping 
the uoforluuate ! It was gracefully done.

THE TETTE EEMEDT. 
"We wonder what the Call expected the 
Chamber of Commerce to do more than they 
have done, in appointing a Vaccine Board 
to take measures for supplying every physi- 
cian in the city with pure vaccine matter, 
and to see that he uses noother- The lack 
of this means of preventing the disease 
has been the chief cause — almost the only 
cause, of its alarming spread. The Call 
thus concludes its article on the action of 
the Chamber of Commerce: 

After the people have been urged for 
months to vaccinate; after thousands have 
been V&CCioated br their own physicians; 
after the Health Officer has v^cciuaied thou- 
sands; after tbe city baa bad in its employ 
for several weeka twenty-one physicians to 
vaccinate people without charge ; after ex- 
perience has demonstrated that the disease 
spreads in<*pite of vaccination and revaccina- 
tiou; after tut* disease has been checked aud 
brought to a stand-still by the Interposition 
of the elements, and vigorous fumigations 
and disinfections all over the city under the 
supervision of the Health Officer and others; 
after all these, the Committee come out with 
a recommendation that the city create a Vac- 
cine Board ! A mouthful of bread to a gal- 
lon of Back ! The people ask for bread, and 
the Committee give them a stone ! The peo- 
ple, who have been vaccinating and revaccifl- 
ating in vain for months, asking tlie Commit- 
tee to devise a check to the pestilence ; and 
that body, after practical men have devised 
means to measurably check the disease, 
comes out with the recommendation to estab- 
lish a Vaccine Board ! tempora, moi'is. 
The Call argues from false premises. It 
is because the Chamber of Commerce have 
had it satisfactorily proved to them that 
vaccination in this city has not been 
thorough, and that this is the cause of the 
spread of the disease that they have taken 
this step Tbe people have not been vac- 
cinated; thousands have been inocculated 
with some irritating matter which has pro- 
duced a sore, but not the sore of tbe cow- 
pox. It would have been wonderful had 
there been at the time of the outbreak of 
small-pox in this city a sufficient supply of 
vaccine matter to vaccinate the entire popu- 
lation. The people have not "been vac- 
cinating and re-vaccinating in vain." Vac- 
cination — true vaccination, has been com- 
paratively rare. To be aware of this fact 
but very little knowledge of the physiciao's 
art is necessary. Anything in the shape of 
a " scab " has been used for " vaccinating " 
purposes. "Vaccination " in this city baa 
been a humbug. The Chamber of Com- 
merce have taken measures to prevent its 
being so any longer, by appointing a Vac- 
cine Board, which will carefully garner up 
a supply of pure vaccine matter, and pro- 
pagate true cow-pox throughout the city. 
In spite of the pig-headed Call, which al- 
ways appeals to the prejudices of the ignor- 
ant, i be public of San Francisco will 
endorse the action of the Chamber of Com- 
merce. 



IN ot Very fs t l-nn^o. 

In Russia a numerous sect has aripen who 
acknowledge God, but discard every other 
religious belief. Fifty of their leaders who 
have been imprisoned, steadfastly refuse to 
recant one iota. — Ex. 

Under the circumstances we do not 
think this very strange. There are few 
sects in exisleuce that have less left to 
recant.

ARGUMENT OF " THE B HEMIAN GIRL." 

A band of Gypsies were straying near the 
magnificent castle of Arnhelin, when a young 
Pob), Thaddea*, appeared closely pursued 
bvaoldlera. Taking a fancy to him. Devils^ 
■ ;r leader, invited him to join their 
band. Ue consented, donned the Gypsy 
-.1 hi* pur.-uera passed by without 
recognizing him. Directly nfter. Gftofj 
helm, with bin attendant?, sallied out from 
rig excur-ion : hhl WM 
speedily recalled by the news that In- little 
daogbtcp, Arliiif, was wounded by a deer 
who ha ■ ihaddeas 

saved her from death, and, hat lather in 
gratitude. Invited him Ii istle, to par- 

tOkW-Of the hunt. ■;■'■ Feast, Thll wan going 

on very merrily, when some one proposed 

the Emperor of Au itrla. 

Thaddeua would not drink it; but when 

to do so. dashed his cup in , 
The enraged nobles present are about to kill 
him, when Dewtlshool rushes in to the rescue. 
H. i- disarmed, taken prisoner, ami con&ned 
in an upper room of the castle. From this 
tpes ( an. I in revenge, carries off to the 
woods the little Arline. Thaddeua, mean- 
icen ii free. 
I oi twelve yeara is now sud- 
, and wc are introduced to a 
Gypsy encampment [n the environs ol Pres- 
burg, on the eve of a fair. Devltshoof and 
rob Florensteln, who is a 
nephaw of Count Arnheim. Thaddeaa ami 
Irline, who has grown to be a beautiful 
woman, are In love with one another. At- 
Hue relates to Th%^deus a dream, In which 
she imagines herself the inhabitant of a 
splendid castle. Xhaddana. relates to her a 
portion of her early history. They are In- 
terrupted by thavGypsy Queen, who is jettlooa 
rpi Arline, and in love with rhaddeos. 

carried to the grand square of 
Presburg, where the fair I* in progress, The 
Oypsles enter and go through various songs 
and dances fdr the amusement of the popu- 
lace. Plorenstetn, Btruek with the appear* 
ancoof Arline, offers her some playful atten- 
tion, but is repulsed in his efforts to make 
her acquaintance. The Queen, observing 
this, slips ii medaUlofii belonging to Ploreu- 
stein, over a i hue's neck. Ploreatine, quickly 
seeing it, lias her arrested as a thief, and 
taken before the Count of Arnheim, who, 

during the examination, recognizes her aa 

his daughter. 

Noxt we ace Arlino in her father's caatle, 
surrounded by wealth ami splendor. Hut she 
does not, forget the "hi love, or old friends. 
Thaddegs visits her. They are interrupted by 
tlie Count, who i.^ furious at finding the low 
lover with his daughter. She calmly replies 
to her father's manaees, and avows her un- 
changeable attachment to Thaddeos, The 
latter, at this, explains to the Count that lie 
is Of high rank, like himself, being one of the 
nnfortuuute Polish noblemen who had been 
obliged to leave their native land, ami that 
he had assumed Gypsy life and habits for 
safety. This explanation pleases every one 
but the Gypsy Queen, who is a listener. She 
orders a Gypsy to shoot Thaddcns, but the 
weapon Of death is turned asside by Devils- 
hoot who is there also, to rejoice iu the 
good fortune of his friend.

THE GREAT SECRET, 

"Howtosecurethe attention and affections 
cf the opposite sex," is solved by wearing the 
elegant boots made only by Cqas. F. Howard, 
604 Kearny street. All those stylish boots 
which excited sncll general observation 
and admiration at the late ball were his 
manufacture, and have been universally pro- 
nounced the most extraordinary combination 
of case, elegance and fashion ever produced. 
They are made in exact conformity with the 
requirements r the anatomy of the foot, thus 
securing to all who wear them perfect im- 
munity from corns aud bunions, and to tender 
feet a luxurious scuse of comfort unknown 
before. 

C. F. H. acknowledges, with feelings ol 
pride and pleasure, the courtesv of several 
hundred ladies recently married, or engaged 
to be married, who have by letter gracefully 
and praterully confessed that they attribute 
their present happiness to the elegant boots 
bought at No. CM Kearny street. Beware of 
the spurious imiiations which envious aud 
unprincipled vendors are attempting to palm 
off on the public as " the same article," etc., 
and which surely cripple the wearers sooner 
or later. The genuine article can only be ob- 
tained of Chakles F. Howakd, 601 Kearny 
street, second door north of Sacramento.

THE BEST EVIDENCE OF THE VALUE OF 
au anitde nauy be found in the fact of its 
baviuR numerous im'tabrd. Every fine poem 
has i'S parodies : evt'nmeretorious literary woih 
is subject to pliigaristns ; every ^uccecsml play 
has been burlesqued ; every honest man has uia 
detractors ; every genuine dollar has been couu- 
terleited; and every valuable medicinal prepara- 
tion has its vile imitations. The propiieiors of 

DR. HENLEY'S 

WILD GRAPE ROOT l-X-L BITTERS 

Have encountered the usual experience in this 
resoect. Such baa been tbe success of this 
HterlinR preparation, that all inferior articles of 
the kied hav<* virtually been driven from the 
mavtet. Tbe cnncoclors of tbe3e beverages Aud- 
it p that this new Tonic ha-* exactly met tbe pub- 
lic'want, and that no further demand exists for 
interior preparation?, have resorted to the dis- 
honest expedient of imitating either ihe name 
or the sty e of label, both of which h'ive been 
duly secured by the lawa of the Stute to the 
propri- torts ot tue I-X L ilitters. 

In justice to ourselves, as well as to the public, 
who may be deceived by these nefarious prac- 
tices, we hereby notify all parties guilty of in- 
iringementon our rights, as well m thope wlo 
have be^u buying up our old bottles in order to 
palm off their own nostrums as the genuine 
article, that tbey will be prosecuted to the lull 
ex'ftot of the liw. 

For tbe further protection of consumer!', we 
would state ttat we never bell our Bitters in bulk, 
but always by the case. Look for our Trade 
Mark on every bottle ; and in ordering the article 
utht-rwiw than direct from us, be sure to order 
"Ur. Heney's Wild Grjpe Root I-X-L Bitters," 
and don't allow yourself to be imposed upon 
with an inferior article.

OF ALL THE GREAT CUBIOSITIES WHICH 
attract the most attention at the Mechanics' 
Fair, are the wonderful improvements which are 
now attached to the well-known WHEELER & 
WILSON SEWING MACHINE, without the com 
pletion of the others. This is the only Family 
Sewing Machine with the new Silent Feed Motion. 
It makes one thousand button-holes per day, on 
linen, cotton or woolen goods. It sews on the 
binding of a dress, without previous basting, in 
£our minutes; aud whilo Bewing on one tuck, 
makes the line of marks for another; gathers and 
sewes on at the same time; hems silk or woolen 
goods with equal facility; cords and braids with 
surprising quickness ; makes articles for men's aB 
well as women's wear ; takes two thousand stitcbeB 
per minute, which is fifteen hundred stitches 
more than any other lock-stitch can make. 

This wondurf ul machine has no ehu ttlo to thread 
five or six times before starting, which is a great 
Baving of time. It iB a positive fact that WHEE- 
LER & WILSON'S FAMILY SEWING MA- 
CHINES will do all the same kind of work tua,t 
the other machines now on sole will do — will 
make the same single thread loop-stitch that rav- 
els out; also the doable loop-stitch, which also 
ravels out very conveniently, because you can 
sew with one yard of thread all day long, sewing 
in your thread, then raveling it and sewing it i ; 
again, and so on— all right, and very coDveuientn 
but you will find that the same WHEELER & 
WILSON FAMILY SEWING MACHINE that does 
all these wonaerful things, makeB also the only 
straight, solid look-stitch which cannot be raveled 
perfectly safe to walk to church with clothing 
made with this etitch; also this machine will 
make the three thread embroidery stitch, which 
is the loop-stitch and lock-stitch combined, and 
forms the most beautiful ornamental finish, per- 
fectly secure against raveling, and very durable. 
The Ameeioam Institute, New York, reportB : 
"This Machine makes the 

LOCK STITCH, 
and ranks highest on account of the elasticity 
permaueuce, beauty and general desirableness of 
application." 

This report was in accordance with the previ- 
ous—the stitching when done, and the wide range 
of its awards at the Fair of the United States 
Agricultural Sociely, at the Fairs of the 
American Institute, New York ; 
Mechanics' Association, Boston ; 
Franklin Institute, Philadelphia • 
Kentucky Institute, Baltimore ; 
Mechanics' Association, Ciucisii&ti ; 
Mechanics' Association, St. Louis ; 
Mechanics' Institute, San Francisco ; 
Metropolitan Mechanics' Institute, Washington. 

AT THE STATE FAIBB OF 

Maine, Virginia, Tennessee, 

Vermont, Mississippi, Illinois, 

Connecticut, Missouri, Kentucky, 

New York, Ohio, Michigun, 

New Jersey, Indiana, Wisconsin, 

Iowa, Pennsylvania, California, 

And at hundreds of Country Fairs. 

The battle-fields of Napoleon I. were scarcely 
more numerous than the foreign contests of the 
Wheeler & Wilson Sewing Machines. Paris in 
18G1, London 1862, Linz and Koanigsburg 1868, 
Dantzic, Agram and Krcma 1864, and Lublin, 
Stettin, Cologne and Wicmar 1S66. bear testimony 
to the superiority of this Machine and its tppre- 
ciattou abroad. At all these Intern -tional Exhi- 
bitions the best fruits of foreign genius were 
arrayed against it, backed by national amour 
propre ; hut there, as here, the star of its destiny 
is always in the ascendant. 

Indeed, no human testimony could be strongei 
than that which has been accorded this Machine 
for superiority over all others for family use and 
for general manufacturing purposes.

A HAPPY NEW YEAB. 

Id spite of much illness, many lugubrioos 
editorials id the newspapers, the Earth-

railroad tracks, and leaky roofs, we hope 
that a Happy New Tear is in. store for 
every one ; these exceptions and some 
others being made. Those who have bad 
their share of troubles during those black, 
nasty months of the Old Year, ought to 
greet the New Year with joy ; and those 
who have good fortune and happiness at 
present may hope for its continuance 
during the coming year. Therefore every 
one should be happy. Quod erat demon- 
strandum.

"THE OVERLAND MONTHLY." 
The Overland Monthly, for January, is a 
capital holiday number, the more so as U 
contains four stories with a supernatural 
element in them: "A Legend of Siberia," 
" The TJncon secreted Painting," "Hu Hir- 
wan's Ghost," and ''Buried Alive in the 
Sea." "The Outcasts of Poker Flat " is a 
capital story of California life. "A Talk 
about Letters " is an interesting piece of 
" cram," and may contain facts new to 
some or the readers of The Overland 
Monthly, though we think that its author 
would be disappointed were he aware how 
little of originality there is in his laborious 
compilation. '• On Foot io Southern Cali- 
tornia" is a delightfully rich and vivid 
piece of word painting. "Journalism as 
a Profession " is an admirable article Writ- 
ten by one who evidently understands his 
subject, and has a full appreciation of the 
responsibilities attached to the profession 
of journalism. With charming naivete our 
author — kDOwiDg that be is writing fur all 
classes, the vulgar rich as well as the men 
who have nothing but breed, talent and 
education— protests against writing for 
newspapers being considered degrading: 

There has gradually arisen among literary 
men a very erroneous notion that the profes- 
sion of a journalist is not worthy to rank in 
the roll of literary callings; and very many 
even think it degrading to write Tor a 
newspaper. These are altogether mistaken, 
the truth being that, to be an able journalist, 
it is necessary to possess literary talent af 
the very highest order. The man who can 
write a really clever leading article every 
day for a month, must possess qualifications 
which would enable him to perform almost 
any kind of literary work that conld be 
imagined. Moreover, the newspaper is an 
admirable training school, and the habits 
acquired there wilt retain their value for all 
after life. The newspaper writer learns to 
condense his ideas — a most valuable mctruire- 
ment, as all know who have been perplexed 
by the flux of thoughts which sometimes 
pour upon them when they begin to write, 
only to worry and confuse them. He learns 
to use the most appropriate words, and the 
simplest; indeed, he soon discovers that the 
simplest expressions necessarily are the most 
appropriate. He acquires a faculty of seiz- 
ing the pith of a subject at once, and expe- 
rience teaches him to pick out the weak 
places in an adversary's argument with al- 
most unerring instinct. He also discovers 
the value of time— than which no young man, 
writer or other, can learn a lesson more im- 
portant and useful. There is, ihen, nothing 
debasine in journalism • bat, on the contrary, 
when rightly conducted, its natnal position is 
in the very front rank of literature. 

In notices of Current Literature, ".Smok- 
ing and Drinking," by James Parton, is 
most delightfully carved, while " Five 
Years within the Golden Gate," by Isabelle 
Saxon, would have received more commen- 
dation had the critic borne in mind that the 
authoress was writing for English people, 
and that they know veryKttle indeed about 
California. Take it all in all the January 
number of The Overland Monthly is the 
best which has yet appeared, because its 
contents are the most varied. 



PTew Ycar'i Resolution. 

Everyone is forming good resolutions for 
the New Year. All should resolve to prac- 
tice economy, and they can do so by patron- 
izing the WhatChber t*ACNDBY, where they

beautiful theatre, purchasing bis outfit of

than '■ A Flash of Lightning." It so pleased 
the " Maid of Orleans " that Lvstcr appeared 
as " Bull in a China Shop," with one of 
UfTicx's Shirts made to order. 



The Seasons. 

The Summer has passed away even in Cali- 
fornia, and Winter stands at. the door. The 
•irth is patting on her Winter garb and her

suited to the season. The fashionable men 
of 8an Francisco are flocking to the great

All tbe printiog houses in the city ha,e 
for the last three er foor weeks been 
engaged in publishing colored and illumi- 
nated calendars which thaj present to 
their customers to be hung up i« their 
offices. The walls of the " Fioabo " office 
re ablaze with purple, greeo abd.gold, and 
e record of the flight of Time meets the 
eye everywhere. Out of the dozens— we 
cannot mention Uiem all - there ie that of 
Francis A Valentine's groat printing house, 
brilliant in fold, green and crimson— very 
rich, very Substantial. In direct contrast 
' to this is the quiot and tasteful production 
of Wade * Co., with its subdued tints and 
artistically combined border. The most 
full in the information it gives, and at the 
same lime the most handsome in general 
appearance, is the calendar published by 
the Ea> Mia Patria polyglot printing 
house, though some of the typographical 
"effects," if we may be allowed the ex- 
pression, are not ofiginal ; the curved 
ribbons at tho top and bottom having been 
borrowed from a show card printed for 
Meaare. Faulkuor & Co. some five yeirs 
ago, by Mr. Wade, who for originality 
ot design and neatness of oxecuuon is 
equalled by few practical printers in Cali- 
fornia. So mtcli for the pretty New Year's 
gins of the printers.

VrFVRUl BLLJUETT 

" Bow to secure the attention and affections 
of the opposite sex," is solved by wearing the 
elegant boots made only by Cu as. F.Howard, 
604 Kearny street. All those stylish boots 
which excited such general observation 
and admiration at the late ball were bis 
manufacture, and have been universally pro- 
noanced the most extraordinary combination 
of ease, elegance and fashion ever produced. 
They are made in exact conformity with the 
requirements of tho anatomy of the foot, thus 
securing to all who wear them perfect im- 
munity from corns and bunions, and to teuder 
feet a luxurious sense of comfort unknown 
before. 

C. F. H. aclroowl edges, with feelings of 
pride and pleasure, the courtesy of several 
hundred ladies recently married, or engaged 
to be married, who have by letter gracefully 
and prate fully confessed that they attribute 
their present happiness to the elegabt boots 
bought at No. 004 Kearny street. Beware of 
the spurious imitations which envious and 
unprincipled vendors are attempting to palm 
off on tho public as " the same article," etc., 
and which surely cripple the wearers sooner 
or later. The genuine articlo can only be ob- 
tained of Chiklks F. Howakd, 604 Kearny

rpHE BEST EVIDENCE OF THE VALUE OF

market. Tbe concoclora of tbeae beverage*, find> 
ii g that this new Tonic ha* exactly met tbe pub- 
lic want, and that no further demand exists for

honest expedient of imitutlog eitlier the name

duly secured by the laws of tbe State to the

fringement en our rights, as well an thoxe wbo 
have beau buying up our old hottles in order to 
palm off their own nostrums as tbe genuine

WHEELER & WILSON'S 



HIGHEST PREMIUM 



SEWING MACHINE 



OF ALL THE GREAT CTfRI08ITTE8 WHICH 
attract the most attention at the Mechanics' 
Fair, are the wonderful improvements which are 
now attached to the well-known WHEELER & 
WILSON BEWT2TG MACH1KE, without the com 
pletlon of the others. This la the only Family! 
Sewing Machine with the new Silent Feed Motion, i 
It makes one thousand buttonholes per day, on 
linen, cotton or woolen goods. It sews on the 
binding of a dross, without previous basting, in 
(our minutes; and while sewing on one tuck, 
makes the line of marks for another; gathers and 
seweson at the same time; hems Bilk or woolen 
goods with equal facility; cords and braids with 
surprising quickness ; makes articles for men's as 
well as women's wear ; takes two thousand stltcheB 
per minute, wnich 1b fifteen hundred stitches 
more than any other lock-stitch can make. 

This wondurf ul machine has no shuttle to thread 
five or six times before starting, which is a great 
saving of time. It is a positive fact that WHEE- 
LER & WILSON'S FAMILY SEWING MA- 
CHINES will do all the same kind of work that 
the other machines now on sale will do — will 
make the same single thread loop-stltch that nw- 
els out; also the double loop-stitch, which also 
ravels out very conveniently, because you can 
sew with one yard of thread all day long, sewing 
in your thread, then raveling It and sewing it 1 ; 
again, and so on — all right, and very convenient 
but you will find that the Bame WHEELER & 
WILSON FAMIEY SEWING MACHINE that does 
all these wonuerful things, makes also the only 
straight, solid lock-stitch which cannot be raveled 
perfectly safe to walk to church with clothing 
made with this stitch; also this machine will 
make the three thread embroidery stitch, which 
is the loop-stitch and lock-stitch combined, and 
forms the most beautiful ornamental finish, per- 
fectly secure against raveling, and very durable. 
The AaiEBiCAN Institute, New York, reports : 

"This Machine makes the 

LOCK STITCH, 
and ranks highest on account of the elasticity 
permanence, beauty and general desirableness of 
application." 

This report was in accordance with the previ- 
ous — the stitching when done, and the wide range 
uf its awards at the Fair of the United States 
Agricultural Society, at tbe Fairs of the 

American Institute, New York ; 

Mechanics' Associutiou, Bos-tou ; 

Franklin Institute, Philadelphia; 

Kentucky InBt'tute. Btltlmure ; 

Mechanics' Association, Cinuin^etl ; 

Mechanics' Association, St. Louis ; 

Mechauics' Institute, San Fravcisoo ; 

Metropolitan Mechanic**' Institute, Washington. 
AT THli STATE FAinS OF 
Maine, Virginia, Tonne p&ee, 

Vermont, Mississippi, Illinois, 

Connecticut, Missouri, Kentucky, 

New York, Ohio, Michigan, 

New Jersey, . Indiana, Wisconsin, 

Iowa, Pennsylvania, 'California, 

And at hundreds of Country Fairs. 

The battle-fields of Napoleon I. 'were scarcely 
more numerous than tbe foreign < omests of the 
Wheelur & Wilson Sewing Machines. Paris in 
18t>l, London 1363. Linz and EosuigBburg 1868, 
Da»tzic, Agram and Krcma 1864, and Dublin, 
Stettin, Cologne and Wicmar 18<J6, bear toBtimony 
to the superiority of this Machiue and its appre- 
ciation abroad. At all these Intern itional Exhi- 
bitions the best fruits of fonign genius were 
arrayed against it, backed by national airu,ur 
vropre ; but there, as here, tbe star of its destiny 
Is always in the ascendant. 

Indeed, no bumon testimony could be Btrongei 
than that which has been accorded this Machine 
for superiority over all others for family use and 
for general manufacturing purposes.

TO THE PROFESSION. 

If members of (he Profession going Eart will 
prerloas to their depart ore from Ban Francisco 
leare ut their addreea, we a nail be happy to fur* 
nUh them duly with s copy of *' Fioabo' ' by mail. 



JOURNALISTIC BLACK-MAILING. 

People outside of S;.o Francisco, from 
reading the complaints ol journalistic black- 
mailing, may perhaps suppose that the evil 
is a very prevalent one here. We do not 
think it is. We fancy that the complaints 
to which we refer are made sgiinst one 
paper in this city, or, perbapp, two. We 
cannot feel much sympathy for the writer 
of the f .Uowiog letter, which appeared in 
the Bulletin: 

Editob Blllet n:— I am one of those men 
whuse baeioeas causes them to advertise in 
the public journals uf this city. I endeavor 
to advertise in thoae newspapers which have 
a circulation, and are seen by the people. Of 
course. I am run down by solicitors the mo- 
ment my advertisements appear ; but to this 
I d>> not r-u Diu-.h object, but I have a greater 
diGcuIty to surmount ; if 1 refuse, I am threat- 
ened, and ray business i* attacked. I wish 
to a-fk the respectable journals of this city 
if there is no way to get rid of this nuisance ? 
Mu-t 1 stand black-mail mouth after mouth, 
and my acts distorted! 

" Amusements " ought to have sense 
enough to know that a paper which resorts 
to the means which be mentions, in order 
to obtain advertisements, has but little in- 
fluence on the public mind; and if, as from 
his signature we presume is the case, he is 
the proprietor of a place of amusement, 
the paper or papers to which he refers can 
do him but little barm as long as he pre- 
sents an en'ertaiDment acceptable to the 
public. It is true they may annoy him, but 
they cannot injure him. In giving an adver- 
tisement to such papers he proves himself 
a coward, and iL is not to be wondered at 
that they, presuming on this fact, harshly 
criticise (or the sake of showing thai they 
know he is afraid to withdraw his patron- ' 
age, lest a worse thing come upon bim. The 
Call makes the following sensible remarks 
on this subject, which we most heartily in- 
dorse: 

Business men can rid themselves of these 
black-mailing brigands by kicking them ont 
of doors. There is no more reason why a 
man should be bullied into advertising than 
there is why he, should be bullied into buy- 
ing a pair of boots, a suit of clothes, or a 
horse. J/urnals, whose importunate so- 
licitors threaten people with loss of trade if 
they do not advertise in them, are not worth 
advertising in : and those who do thus 
threaten should be scut to the nearest Police- 
s' ation. 

If the business men of San Francisco 
•will show a Hale pluck, will exercise a little 
common sense, and reflect of how little con- 
sequence the opinion of such men even 
when expressed in print, is, the evil of 
which they justly complain will soon be 
abated All they have to do is to call a 
policeman, and say, " Show this man the 

door."

Oliolco Reading. 

W. E. Looojia, the popular news agent, 
corner of Sansome and Washington streets, 
is now receiving his subscription orders for , 
the present year, for any oi the Eastern or , 
European magazines or journals, at publish ! 
era' p'ioes. Call ou him if you want choice 
reading matter for 1869. 



On the 3d day of January, A. P. 1869, the 
Alia entered upon the twenty-first year of its 
imbecility. Xeit year it will have become 
"of age," and will be legally, though by no 
means intellectually, qualified to set up 
house-keeping for itself, and will be entitled 
to a vote. But we do not anticipate any 
action, on the AUa's part, looking to an in- 
dependent stale of existence. It has been 
too long in leading-strings — has worn bibs 
and dickeys and monkey-jackets for too 
many years to care now to assume the toga 
virilis, and strut up and down California 
street in awkward gorgeousness of tights 
and tail-coat. (The sagacious reader will 
observe that we have, for this occasion 
only, dropped the hackneyed metaphor of 
the old woman, under which the Press is 
wont to discourse concerning the AUa; it's 
becoming Btale.) No, the AUa will remain 
under the paternal roof, and, secure in tbe 
affection of tbe bankers and real estate 
auctioneers, can stare stupidly out of tbe 
windows at its lively contemporaries as 
they laughingly mock its grins and grim- 
aces, with tbe philosophic stolidity of an 
oyster locked up for the night But what 
Is tab ? 

The AUa progresses with the times. The 
issue of the 3d of January, 1879, will be as 
superior to tbe issue of the 3d of January. 
18GJ, as that was to the issue of correspond- 
ing date in 1869, tnd that again to that little, 
Uny -^heet which made its first appearance in 
1840. 

Great Scott! Is our cup of misery not 
yet full? Is granny — we beg pardon, 
bubby — not only alive, but actually kick- 
ing? Does the callous youth not only ex- 
hibit indifference to past ridicule, but does 
it defy future attacks and menace us with 
coming 'superiority?' 1 We all know the 
AUa's idea of what constitutes a "superior" 
journal ; it is tbe blessed quality of being 
superior to common sense. At the threat- 
ened rate of geometrical progression, just 
think—" What will that paper be in 1899 ? 
Figures are inadequate ; the heart sinks at 
the thought; tbe imagination drops from its 
lofty but ineffectual flight and flutters 
piteously with limp wings and dejected tail 
along the lower plains of conjecture. The 
human mind reels before this appalling 
conundrum, and sbudderingly gives it up. 



Printers and >"evspapers. 

The Merced Herald, speaking of news- 
papers, says : 

The balance of mankind will have to be 
educated up to the knowledge, that to print- 
ers belong the business of publishing and 
managitig newspapers, and that when mere 
tyros in the business assume the duties t-f 
editors and publishers of newspapers many 
fatal mistakes will be made, and the business 
generally in '.he State be compelled to suffer 
in consequence. 

Here is the whole thing in a nut-ahelL 
The balance of mankind must be educated 
up to the knowledge that the proprietors of 
the London Times are all able to set their 
eight thousand ems a day : that James Gor- 
don Bennett is a practical printer; that 
there never was an editor in any country 
who amounted to anytbiug who was not a 
practical printer. On the other baud, we 
would suggest to the Merced Herald man, 
that every printer is not necessarily an ac- 
complished editor. 



Dress Suits. 

If you are particular in regard to the style 
and fit of your clothes— and what man of 
taste is not ?— try J. W. Nobthon, Merchant 
Tailor, 747 Clay street, opposite the Plaza. 
Nobthon's terms are moderate, aud he al- 
ways suits.

A. JJIvtle Mixed. 

Spaulding's Glue and Zozodont appear to 
run together in the advertising columns of 
many papers. The other day the two ad- 
vertisements ran so very closely together 
that we read : "As a beiutifier and 
preserver of ihe teeth, refreshing the mouth, 
sweetening tbe breath, and arresting the 
progress of decay — Spaulding's Glue." We 
don't think we should like to use Spauld- 
ing's Glue for our teeth, even if they were 
;"alse ones,

THE U TDIAg WAB. 

It has been some time since we have had 
so cheering a batch of news from the Indian 
country as yesterday's dispatches bring us. 
Generals Sheridan and Hazen are "operat- 
ing " against these tawny scoundrels io a 
manner frightfully at variance with the es- 
tablished usage of our regular army. Sher- 
idan actually announces as intention to keop 
up a winter campaign until be " takes the 
starch out of them." Think of that, a thiev- 
ing white man taking the starch out of a 
poetic red one I If that officer doesn't re- 
ceive his p-tpers, and like Captain Jinks 
walk out of the army, we know but little 
of the temper of Bureau opinion at Wash- 
ington. Charley Sumner will rise up in his 
might and swear they (the Indians) shall be 
free— to plunder at will WeDdell Philips 
will deliver lectures a mile in length, and 
succeed in establishing the neglected truth 
that the noble savage is, if anything, con- 
siderably superior to white men in general, 
and himself in particular. Congress will 
convene and adopt a Constitutional amend- 
ment, declaring that no more Indians shall 
be killed, and that all slaughters heretofore 
made shall be considered null at.d void, and 
not binding on the part of the slaughtered 
Lot Grant at once screw up his silence to 
tbe sticking point if he would retain his two 
favorites in shoulderstraps. All his per- 
suasive reticence will be called into play to 
rescue their heads from the humanitarian 
axe. 

Since the above was in type, we learn 
that Grant's pets have been discharged.

and buy Star shirts, socks, drawers aud un- 
der linen at a few cents advance on whole- 
sale prices.

Trie Seasons. 

The Summer has passed away even in Cali- 
fornia, and Winter stands at the door. The 
earth is putting on her Winter garb and her 
inhabitants are also adopting a costume 
suited to the season. The fashionable men 
of San Francisco are flocking to the great 
clothing stores of J. K. Meade & Co.. at the 
corners of Montgomery and Bush, and San- 
some and Washington, and purchasing those 
durable, fashionable Fall and Winter suits 
which he is now selling and will continue to 
sell for the next thirty days at such remarka- 
bly low prices. * 

One Thousand Dollars Reward will 
be given to any man that can sell Carpets or 
Furniture cheaper than John C. Bell. We are

at private saic ana auction ; he aells at any pricw ; 
all be wants is the commission. He also sells 
Carpets, Lace Curtains, Marseilles Quilts, and 
House Furnishing Goods of every description in 
tbe same manner. * 

Pure Beverages fob the Holiday 
Tables. — The residents of the southern portion 
of the city can rely upon procuring at Dolan's 
Family Liquor Store, No. 145 Third street, pure 
Wines, Liquors and Ales for the forthcoming 
festive season. I ola>" also keeps on hand 
genuine Irish and Scotch Whiskies, of his own

Between the Acts. — Between the acts 

people are too apt to go out of the theatre ; we 
do not approve of the fashion, but if ihey must 
moisten their clay they cannot find better bev- 
cwf6 to driDk than at P. connob's "iSnng," 
next door to Muguire's Opera Houe-c Entrances

Tba fan*.* drunk is a solitirr bird — a 
palkmo of tba arflderoaaa — a last rose of 
summer left blooaiag alone. 

She baa no one to reel home with, arm- 
in-arm, )oioing in tho cheerlul evening 
hyiDD. "Wearoii'tgo home till morniog." 

Like Mariana, in the moated grange, she 
may wait, swilling bad whisky in t -ie corner 
grocery store, until all is blue, no one will 
take here borne ; therefore she liea down and 
is taken to the Police-flUtion. 

On the road to the itatioo-honse. if the 
female drunk is able to walk, she kicks the 
shins of the policemen (it always lakes two 
lo manages female drunk), end tries by this 
means and by the uso of the moat refined 
profanity (double-distilled essence of oaths) 
to convince them that " she is a lady born 
aod bred." 

If one of the policemen ventures to urge 
her forward, she rends tho sacred silence of 
the night with shrieks, and all the bum- 
mers in the neighborhood, the night owls 
and the jswhawks, the whole ornithological 
collection on Barbary Coast, assemble and 
cry "shame!" and ask the policemen " Dot 
to murder the poor thing." 

Altogether, the female drunk contains 
fewer of the elements of joliihty tbao the 
mtsculiue drunk. 

It is -...iprufiublo. 

It is disgraceful. 

If I were a femato, I would not be a 
female drunk.

A policeman recently wont to serve a 
warrant on a woman, and she mildly pro- 
tested with n poker under the left ear. lit; 
concluded to give the matter further con* 
siderntion before making the arrest, and she 
assisted his pacilic resolution by kicking 
him into the street. Truly we have amn- 
zons among us. and if some of our puny 
new police could be swapped off for these 
brawny damsels with ferruginous biceps

Oli, Certainly, 

The Chronicle closes a loDg article in 
T.bich it confesses to the fact of its proprie- 
tor having eneaked into a private house for 
te purpose of taking an inventory of the 
plate, thus: 

W&dnnot propose to accept the Alta's 
and the Bulletin's code of news-paper " pro- 
prieties;" and we Khali continue with " in- 
exorable fortitode" to report everything that 
; lL-arn anything about, which we think 
v.il interest and entertain our readers. 

Certainly. Aud let this part of the duties 
of the Otronicle office be fulfilled by the 
proprietor, who will tbu3 have many more 
opportunities of proving his '* inexorable 
fortitude " — in the breach. 



The California Academy ol" 
Sciences. 

We are pleased to be able to state that 
the California Academy of Sciences is in a 
Bouriabjng condition. It held its 
snnual meeting on Monday, and the report 
was most satisfactory. One hundred dol- 
lars worth of shells have been purchased 
aud the Society has a rattlesnake's tail 
with thirty rattles. We do Dot suppose 
that there is another Academy of Science 
in the whole wor:d that has a rattlesnake's 
tail with thirty rattles. Great is California, 
great ber Academy of Sciences, great the 
rattlesnake's tail with thirty rattles. 



>'ew Music. 

We have received from the author, "The 
; There's a Pale Bright Star," a 
ballad for alto or baritooe, by Gustav A. 
dedicated to Mrs. Charles James 
lung, nee E. Crossett G. Schirmer, 701 
Broadway, New York, publisher. Both 
words* and music are full of expression.

THE GREAT SECRET, 

" How to secure the attention and affeotion* 
of the opposite sex," is solved by wearing tht 
elegant boots made only l>y i.'ha.-. F. Howard, 
604 Kearny street. All those stylish boots 
which excited such general observation 
and admiration at the late ball were his 
manufacture, and have been universally pro- 
nounced the most extraordinary combination 
of ease, elegance and fashion ever produced. 
They are made in exact conformity with the 
requirements of the anatomy of the foot, thus 
securing to all who wear them perfect im- 
munity from corns and bunions, and to tender 
feet a luxurious sense of comfort unknown 
before. 

C. P. H. acknowledges, with feelings of 
pride and pleasure, the courtesy of several 
hundred ladies recently married, or engaged 
to be married, who have by letter gracefully 
and gratefully confessed that they attribute 
their present happiness to the elegant boots 
bought at No. 60i Kearny street. Beware of 
the spurious imitations which envious and 
unprincipled vendors are attcruptiug to palm 
off on the public as " the same article," etc., 
and which surely cripple the wearers sooner 
or later. The genuine article can only be ob- 
tained of Charles F. Howard, 604 Kearny 
street, second door north of Sacramento.

For the Special Treatment of all Diseases of the

Earnest attention is solicited to this Rational 
Methed or Treatment, which transmits the rem- 
edies in Ihe form of vapor, directly to the seat 
of disease, instvad of by the roundabout way— 
through the medium of the stomach— and wliich 
is conceded to be the oklt reliable means 
whereby an alleviation and cure may be expected, 
my 6yetem of inhalation, now well known 
throughout the United States and Oanadas and 
much of Europe, where thousands— many of 
them far advanced— have recovered, claims the 
profoond' si approval of the medical profession, 
and the timely and candid consideration of those 
afflicted with these, the most devastating of all 
earthly maladies, 

jKs-Patients attended at the Institute, daily, 
from 9 a. M. till 4 p.m. 

Invalids at a distance, on writing their case, 
can receive the remedies by express.

SAIL UNDER FALSE COLORS. 

'jiHE BEST EVIDENCE OF THE VALUE OF 
J_ an article may be found iu the fact of its 
having numerous imitators. Every finp poem 
ha3 i r s parodies : even meretorious literary work 
is subject to plagarisms ; every successful play 
has been burlesqued ; every honest man has his 
detractors ; every genuine dollar 1ms been coun- 
terfeited ; and every valuable medicinal prepara- 
tion has ita vile imitations. The proprietors of 

DR. HENLEY'S 

WILD GRAPE ROOT l-X-L BITTERS 

Have encountered the usual experience in this 
resoect. Such has been the success of this 
ster ing prtparjtion, that all inferior articles of 
tho kind have virtually been driven from the 
market. The concoctors of theae beverages, find- 
ii z tbat this new Tonic has exactly met the pub- 
lic want, and that no further demand exists lor 
inferior preparations, have resorted to the dis- 
l.on -!=t expedient of imitatiDg either the name 
or the sty e of label, both of which have been 
duly secured by the laws of the State to the 
propri* tow of tue I-IL Bitters, 

In justice to ourselves, as well as to the public, 
who may bo deceived by these nefarious prac- 
tices, we hereby notify all parties guilty of in- 
fringement on our rights, as well as those wlio 
have been buying up our old bottles in order to 
palm off their own nostrums as the genuine 
article, that they win be prosecuted to the lull 
extent of the l*w. 

For the further protection of consumers, we 
would state that we never sell our Fitters in bulk, 
but always by the case. Look for our Trade 
Mark on every bottle ; and in ordering the article 
otherwise thun direct from us, be sure to order 
"Dr. Henley's "Wild Grape Root l-X-L Bitters," 
and don't allow yourself to be imposed upon 
with an inferior article.

OF ALL THE GREAT CURIOSITIES WHICH 
attract the most attention at the Mechanics' 
Fair, are the wonderful impiovements which are 
now attached to the well-known WHEELER S; 
WILSON SEWING MACHINE, without the com 
pletion of tbe others. This is tbe only Family 
Sewing Machine with the new Silent Feed Motion. 
It makes one thousand button-holes per day, on 
linen, cotton or woolen goods. It sews on the 
binding of a dress, without previous hasting, in 
tour minutes; and while sewing on one tuck, 
makes the line of marks for another; gathers and 
sewes on at the same time; hems silk or woolen 
goAds with equal facility; cords and braids with, 
surprising Quickness; makeB articles for men's as 
well as women's wear ; takes two thousand stitches 
per minute, which is fifteen hundred stitches 
more than any other lock-stitch can make. 

This wonderful machine has no shuttle to thread 
five or six times before starting, which is a great 
saving of time. It is a positive fact that WHEE- 
LER & WILSON'S FAMILY SEWING MA- 
CHINES will do all the same kind of work that 
the other machines now on sale will do — will 
make tbe same single thread loop-stitch that rav- 
els out; also the double loop-stitch, which also 
ravels out very conveniently, because you can 
sew with one yard of thread all day long, sewing 
in your thread, then raveling it and sewing It i ; 
again, and so on— all right, and very convenient!) 
but yon will find that the same WHEELER & 
WILSON FAMILY SEWING MACHINE that does 
alt these wonderful things, makes also the only 
straight, solid lock-stitch which cannot be raveled 
perfectly safe to walk to church with clothing 
made with this stitch; also this machine will 
make the three thread embroidery stitch, which 
is the loop-stitch and lock-stitch combined, and 
forms the most beautiful ornamental finish, per- 
fectly secure against raveling, and very durable. 
The American Institute, New York, reports : 

"This Machine makes tbe 

LOCK STITCH, 
and ranks highest on account of tbe elasticity 
permanence, beauty and general desirableness of 
application." 

This report was m accordance with the previ- 
ous — the stitching when done, and the wide range 
of its awards at the Fair of the United States 
Agricultural Society, at the Fairs of the 

American Institute, New York ; 

Mechanics' Association, Botton ; 

Frankbn Institute, Philadelphia j 

Kentucky Institute. Baltimore ; 

Mechanics' Association, Clncisu&tl ; 

Mechanics' Association, St. Louis ; 

Mechanics' Institute, San Francisco ; 

Metropolitan Mechanics* Institute, Washington. 

AT THE STATE FAIRS OF 

Maine, Virginia, Tennessee, 

Vermont, Mississippi, Illinois, 

Connecticut, Missouri, Kentucky, 

New York, Ohio, Michigan, 

New Jersey, Indiana, Wisconsin, 

Iowa, Pennsylvania, California, 

And at hundreds of Country Fairs. 
The battle-fields of Napoleon I. were scarcely 
more numerous than tbe foreign contests of the 
Wheeler & Wilson Sewing Machines. Paris in 
1861, London 1863, Linz and Kosuigsburg 1868, 
Daivtzic. Agram and Krcma 1864, and Dublin, 
Stettin, Cologne and Wiersar 1866, bear testimony 
to the superiority of this Machine and its appre- 
ciation abroad. At all these Intern *tlorial Exhi- 
bitions the best fruits of foreign genius were 
arrayed against it, backed by national amour 
propre ; but there, as here, the star of its destlnv 
is always in the ascendant. 

Indeed, no human testimony could be stronger 
than that which Las been accorded this Machine 
for superiority over all others for family use and 
for general manufacturing purposes.

A DIABOLICAL SCHEME. 

There is something- going on in Sacra- 
mento, and we know it, There is trouble 
brewing up there, and it's likely to be wide- 
spread and devastating. When the leading 
citv journal lends its influence to secret and 
midoigbtj conclaves of mysterious bodies 
with ominous name?, it is about lime for 
something to be attempted; and if the mi*- 
gnidcd and amphibious inhabitants of that 
city ore so lost to every sense of their owd 
danger as not. to do anything, we shall take 
the metier up for them. "We are not going 
to stand quietly by and watch the fiendish 
machinations of nocturnal cabah until they 
break cut into earthquakes of bloodshed, 
and not pen. a single warning note. Not 
much I Just look at this mysterious para- 
graph, clipped from the Union: 

We ar<- r. quested t*i :-'ate that the ladies 
mndgenilemiMi engaged in getting npthepro- 

?■.. ,.:■.] fe-uval for the benefit oi the V»»ung 
[en's Christian Association will meet at the 
room*, on K street, to complete arrftnge- 
u i • nis. All uiln r Iriends of the Association 
will be welcome. 

"We all know the utter wickedness and 
toUil disregard for human life which charac- 
terize Young Men's Christain Associations. 
Through a long series of outrages we have 
become familiar wiih their diabolical and 
revolutionary natures, and can durkly guess 
at their hideous designs against the peace 
of society, cloaked though tbey be in the 
ambiguous exterior of a benefit or festival, 
for a benefit — which in spite of their eecre- 
tveness we know to mean the same thing. 
This is simply a ramification of other simi- 
lar societies elsewhere located in tbe same 
place and forming part of the same gigantic 
associations of which it is an integral por- 
tion of a divided whole, wiib various pow- 
ers delegated by the central conclaves and 
several lodges of which these comprise a 
part of others. There! that proves there 
is something in it. Does it seem likely that 
we would get mad at nothing?

THE USE OF PUBLIC DITOEBS. 

All the "wretched Bct^o"ble^a ,, in tho 
country who live on a diet of pumpkin pie 
and hot coffee, are indulging in flings against 
Reverdy Johnson, because reports of bis; 
attending public dinners are continually 
arriving over the wires. These writers do 
not seem to be aware of the fact, that the 
public dinner in England takes the place of 
the mass meeting in this country, that there 
when a member of Parliament wishes to 
meet his constituents, or a public man to 
address hia fellow citizens, after dinner is 
the time to do it Reverdy Johnson in 
accepting every invitation to a public din- 
ner which he could, did so with n view to 
viewing the British Lion under the most 
favorable circumstances, and studying tbe 
nature of the animal. We think that many 
a Senator and Congressman would succeed 
in arriving at a knowledge of the wishes of 
hiB constituents much more speedily and 
pleasantly were he to meet them at dinner. 
Reverdy Johnson has taken John Bull ii 
his humor. He went to see John about a 
little but, John said "All right; sit down, 
my dear fellow, we'll talk it over after din- 
oer." The result will be that Reverdy 
Johnson will obtain from England all that 
could be obtained by negotiation. If she 
does not give us our just dues, then we will 
recall the j entlemanly Reverdy Johnson 
whom John Bull invited todinner, and send 
over some man, a representative of the cltiss 
to whom these writers belong, who will 
probably, instead of being asked to dinner, 
be allowed to froth and foam at the door 
and play George Francis Train generally. 



Chlvolrj* vs. Cowarclce. 

, Tbe "Woodland Mail relttes a circum- 
stance which happened in it* delectable 
Tallage, as an illustration o' " Democratic 
chivalry." The fellow who Bgures in the 
story as endeavoring topro'oke an assault, 
was a Democrat who bad quarrelled with 
a political opponent about an election bet, 
and, meeting him upon tb* street — but we 
will let the MaU relate tbeencounter in its 
own chaste and inimitable ityle: 

The brute commenced a tirade of obscene 
and filthy slang, more dwelling, we appre- 
bi n 1. than fever before escaped from the lips 
of a human being. He weit much farther— 
exhausted bis billingsgate, and then let fly 
some of the drippings of hu polluted carcass 
direct in the gentleman's faee. His plain in- 
tention was to tantalize th« gentleman that 
he would commence an aawuli, thus giving 
excuse for murdering hira >n the spot. 

This fellow was cleiTly a great black- 
guard — almost as great a one as tbe Mail 
itself; but if his conduct illustrates "Demo- 
cratic chivalry" as wejl is the Mail's lan- 
guage does journalistic "style," pray what 
does the conduct of the other man illus- 
trate? Clearly, * Radical cowardice." We 
should dislike to be the brute who commit- 
ted this assault — we regard him with abhor- 
rence — but, by Jove! as between bim and 
the man who stood and allowed another to 
spit in his face rather than take the chances 
of getting shot, we think the " brute " 1 
the best of it. 



Tho Xtallj-oud Squabble. 

The Bulletin wages war — bitter war — 
with the Sacramento Union, because the 
latter opposes the Central Pacific Railroad 
and upholds the Union Pacific. The Sacra- 
mento Union carries on unceasing war 
against the Bulletin, because the latter 
condemns the Union Pacific Railroad and 
advocates the Central Pacific. The public 
laugh at both, and the railroad companies 
read neither. They might both howl until 
the crack o' doom, and it would neither 
hinder nor hasten the driving of a single 
spike. The railroad companies have work 
to do; they are engaged in an enterprise 
beside which the publishing of the Bulletin 
and Union shrinks into about the littlest in- 
significance visible to an ordinary mind. If 
their way lay directly through the publishing 
offices of both, the ties and rails would go 
down without a thought, on the part of the 
companies, of whose apple-carls they were 
upsetting. A month's delay of either road 
would be a greater misfortune to the com- 
pany, than the eternal suspension of a 
thousand such papers. Whist! Tray and 
Blanche; tbe elephant doesn't mind ye.

Mormonlsm vs. Civilization. 

The Tiuics, commenting on the editorials 
appearing from time to time in the Salt 
Lake Telegraph, in which the Mormons are 
ironically bidden to be thankful for the ad- 
vance of civilization as manifested at Bear 
River City and other places, says: 

It may perhaps be possible for the Tele~ 
graph to persuade its Mormon readers for a 
time that the class of ruffians who caused tbe 
riot at Bear City, is a fair sample of the peo- 
ple with whom they will be brought in con- 
tact by the Pacific Railroad. But the policy 
of these journals is realy so preposterous, bo 
childish. | 

The Times thinks that the Mormons 
will soon learn to be thankful for tbe rail- 
road aud the '"civilization" it wiU bring. 
As Boon as tbey are tbey will cease to be 
Mormons. The policy of the Salt Lake 
Telegraph in fighting agaioBt the the out- 
siders is a natural one, however futile it may 
be. It is doubtful whether there will be 
more general happine^B among the people 
of Salt Lake City after it becomes crowded 
with Gentiles than there is at present. 



The Market I*rice of Italian 
Boys. 

The market price of Italian boys ranges 
from $5 to $20. Tbey are constantly being 
lost and advertised for. In yesterday's 
Bul'etin the maximum reward ($20) is 
offered for the recovery of one of these lost 
boys. The fact is, that these young min- 
Btrels. after breathing the free air of America 
for a short time, become impatient of re- 
straint, don't see the force of taking their 
earnings home to the old '' Bendetto " who 
brought them out here, but prefer playing 
for their own benefit. Thus tbey become 
lost, and are advertised for in tbe papers. 
As there are r.nher too many of these wan- 
dering minstrels at present in the city, the 
public will be gainers if their masters lose 
a lew more of them, provided they forsake 
their ear-torturing profession and take to 
some quiet business. 



Wew Year's Resolution. 

Everyone is forming gjod resolutions for 
the New Year. All should resolve to prac- 
tice economy, and they can do so by patron- 
izing the What Cheer Lapndky, where they 
can get their washing dune cheaply and well 
and buy Star Bhirts, socks, drawers and un- 
der linen at a few cents advance on whole- 
sale prices. *

and fit of your clotheB— and what man of

Tailor, 7-17 Clay street, opposite the Plaza. 
Northos's terms are moderate, and he al- 
ways suits.

The lIefrot»Iit*n Theatre, 

Alarge and fashionable audience assembled 
X the Metropolitan Theatre last night, when 
VAfticaiM wan performed for the second 
iine. Had this work had the careful rehear- 
al which was bestowed on 7>s Huguenots, 
1 bbj he general effect would he much better; as 
t is, the performance of the opera at the 
Cetropolitau Thoatre is like the piece itself, 
ery fine iu parts but as a whole unsatUfac- 
ory. Mr Armea Beaqmoat sings the role ol 
' VMCO di <iam l'' so well, t)m'. wliiit; bo is 
■n the stage all shortcomings of chorus and

hkrlnl'i Clrcaa. 

There are bo many attractive performances 
dghtly presented at Cbinrini ■ a Circa? oa Jack- 
on street, that it would be strange if every 
toe were not pleased. To-night, a number 
if new and startling feats will be performed.

On the road to the station -ho use, if the 
female drunk is able to walk, she kicks the 
ait ins of the policemen ( it always takes two 
to manage a female drunk), and tries by this 
means and by the use of the most refined 
r (double-distilled essence of oaths) 
to convince them that " she ia a lady born 
aud bred." 

If one of the policemen ventures to urge 
her forward, she rends the sacred silence of 
the night with shrieks, and all the bum 
mere in the neighborhood, tho night owla 
and the JAwbawks, the whole ornithological 
collection oa Barbary Coast, assemble and 
cry "sbnine!" and ask the policemen " not 
to murder the pr or thing." 

Altogether, the female drunk contains 
fewer of the elements of julliliiy than the 
mascu'ino drunk. 

It is unprofitable. 

Tt is disgraceful. 

If I were a female, I would not bo a 
female drunk.

"VTe are pleased to be able to state that 
the California Academy of Sciences is id a

annual meeting on Monday, and the report 
was most satisfactory. One hundred dol- 
lars worth of shells have been purchased 
and the Society has a rattlesnake's tail 
with thirty rattles. We do not suppose 
that there is another Academy of Science 
in the whole wor'.d that has a rattlesnake's

THE GREAT SECRET, 

" How to secure the attention and affections 
of the opposite sex," is solved by wearing the 
elegant boots ntade only by Chas. F. Howard, 
604 Kearny street. All those stylish boots 
which excited such general observation 
and admiration at the late bill were his 
manufacture, and have been universally pro- 
nounced the moat extraordinary combination 
of ease, elegance and fashion ever "produced. 
They are made in exact conformity with the 
requirements of the anatomy of the foot, thus 
securing to all who wear them perfect im- 
munity from corns and bunions, and to tender 
feet a luxurious sense of comfort unknown 
before. 

C. F. H. acknowledges, with feelings of 
pride and pleasure, the courtesy of several 
hundred ladies recently married, or engaged 
to be married, who have by letter gracefully 
and gratefully confessed that they attribute 
their present happiness to the elegant hoots 
bought at No. 604 Kearny street. Beware of 
the spurious imiiationa which envious and 
unprincipled vendors are attempting to palm 
off on the public as " the same article," etc., 
and which surely cripple the wearers sooner 
or later. The genuine articlc'can only be ob- 
tained of Charles F. Howard, U04 Kearny 
street, second door north of Sacramento.

rpHE BEST EVIDENCE OF THE VALUE OF

baviug numerous imttatixa. Every nnB poem 
has is parodies : even mercvorious literary work 
is-eubject to plngarisms ; every snccetfs'ul play 
has been burlesqued ; every honest man has his

WHEELER & WILSON'S 



HIGHEST PREMIUM 



SEWING MACHINE 



OF ALL THE GREAT CURIOSIT1T8 WHICH 
attract the meet attention at the Mechanics' 
Fair, are the wonderful impiovements which axe 
now attached to the weU-lrnown WHEELER & 
WTLSON SEWING MACHINE, without the com 
pletion of the others. This is the only Family 
Sewing Machine with the new SUent Feed Morion. 
It makes one thousand button-holes per day, on 
linen, cotton or woolen goods. It sews on the 
binding of a dress, without previous basting, in 
(our minutes; and while sewing on one tuck, 
makes tbe line of marks for another; gathers and 
sewes on at the same time; heme silk or woolen 
goods with equal faciliiy; cords and braids with 
surprising quickness ; makes articles for men's as 
well as women's wear; takes two thousaud stitohes 
per minute, which Is fifteen hundred stitches 
more than any other lock-stitch can make. 

This wonderful machine has no shnttle to thread 
five or six times before starting, which is a great 
saving of time. It is a positive fact that WHEE- 
LER & WILSON'S FAMILY SEWING MA- 
CHINES will do all the same kind of work that 
the other machines now oh sale will do — will 
make the same single thread loop-stitch that rav- 
els out; also the double loop-stitch, which also 
ravels out very conveniently, because you can 
sew with one yard of thread all day long, sewing 
in your thread, then raveling it and sewing it i ; 
again, and so on— all right, and very convenientn 
but you will find that the some WHEELER & 
WLLSON FAMILY SEWING MACHINE that do<^s 
all these wonderful things, makes also the only 
straight, solid lock-stitch which cannot be raveled 
perfectly safe to walk to church with clothing 
made with this Btiteh; also this machine will 
make the three thread embroidery stltcB, which 
Is the loop-stitch and lock-stitch combined, and 
forms the most beautiful ornamental finiBb, per- 
fectly secure against raveling, and very durable. 
The AjtEiuc an Institute, New York, reports i 

" This Machine makes the 

LOCK STITCH, 
and ranks highest on account of the elasticity 
permanence, beauty and general desirableness of 
application." 

This report was la accordance with the previ- 
ous — the stitching when done, and the wide range 
of its awards at the Fair of the United 8tate3 
Agricultural Society, at the Fairs of the 

American Institute, New York ; 

Mechanics' Association, Bottou ; 

Franklin Institute, Philadelphia ; 

Kentucky Institute, Baltimore; 

Mechanics' Association, Ciuclr^iatl ; 

Mechanics' Association, St. Louis ; 



Mechanics' Institute, 8an Francisco ; 
Metropolitan Mecbauics'Institute, Washington; 

AT THE STATE FAJJ'.S OF 

Maine, Virginia, Tennepsei 

Vermont, Mississippi, Illinois, - 

Connecticut,- MImbouiI, Kentucky, 

New York, Ohio, Michigan, 

New Jersey, Indiana, Wisconsin, 

Iowa, Pennsylvania, CalUoruia, 

And at hundreds of Country Pairs. 
The battle-fields of Napoleon I. were scarcely 
HHire numerous Loan the foreign contests of the 
Wheeler & Wilson Sewing Machines. Parts in 
1861, London 1862, Linz and Kosnigsbnrg 1863, 
Dantzic. Agram and Krenia IBM, and Dublin, 
Stettin, Colpgne and Wiemar 18<>5, bear testimony 
to the superiority of this Machine and its appre- 
ciation abroad. At all these International Exhi- 
bitions the best fruits of foreign genius were 
arrayed against It, backed by national amwr 
propre ; but there, as here, the *t« or Its destiny 
is always in the ascendant. 

Indeed, no human testimony could bo stronger 
than that which has been accorded this Machine 
for superiority over all others for family use and 
for general manufacturing purposes.

KEARNY STEEET. 
Business men occupying stores on 
Kearny street pay a heavy rent for them, 
and expect to be able to pay their rent 
from the business done with the public. 
For months past they have seen very little 
of the public, the street having been almost 
impassable for people with clean boot". 
They also pay taxes for the purpose of 
having the street kept in good order; yet 
Kearny street is still a quagmire. Surely 
these people have some cause of complaint 
against those whose business it is to at 
tend to the streets of the city. Why do 
they suffer in silence? Why do tbey not, 
by conjoined action in this matter, force 
the city authorities and the property- 
holders, to whom they pay heavy rents, to 
put Kearny street in a decent condition ?, 
At present there are no signs of business 
on Kearny street; the proprietors of tbe 
many splendid stores sit disconsolately 
whittling and whistling and curaiug their 
luck. Surely they can do more than this 
if they will make an effort. Why does 
not the city put down a crossing at Clay 
street, sti'-ther at Washington street, and 
others at Jackson and Pacific streets ? 



A. Removal. 

The office of the Society for the Preven- 
tion of Cruelty to Animals has been re- 
moved. The immense press of business 
rendered it absolutely necessary to have 
better accommodations. Three hundred 
and fifty clerks are employed night and 
duy attending to the complaints of sick 
horses, starved pigs, maltreated dogs and 
disregarded cats. The Society seems to 
have solved the problem of doing good by 
stealth. So stealthily does it go about it, 
that no one ever hears of it. 



Drop That ! 

Ou Saturday evening next a prominent 
physician of this city will celebrate the 
twenty-fifth anniversary of his marriage by 
a silver wedding. Here is another floe 
chance for an enterprising newspaper pro- 
prietor to obtain a fall account for his dimi- 
nutive matutinal sheet. — Call. 

Come, now: c&n't you leave bitn alone? 
Hast/t he been pitched into enough, you 
miserable, malignant, matutinal Calif 



** Foul Play." 

We blush for tbe Bulletin. There is 
some one in that establishment with a soul 
no bigger than that of a peddler of lead 
pencils. We know him. He is so low 1 

So petty !

THAT TEEATY. 

The CaU has some exceedingly sensible 
remarks upon tbe proposed Reciprocity 
Treaty between the United States and the 
Hawaiian Islands. This treaty was 
cooked — in fact i/c-Cooked— up apparently 
with no other object th*n to put mooey 
into the purses of George Gordon and the 
Hawaiian planters from whom be purchases 
his unrefined sugars. These sugars under 
the treaty he could import dutyfree; in 
other words, the Government would give 
up a few hundred thousand dollars of an- 
nual revenue, so that Mr. Gordon might be 
ab!e — generous man ! — to avll sugar to bis 
customers at a lower figure. There are no 
laws to compel him to do it, nor is there 
likely to be any competition that would 
make it to his interest to do so; but from 
the boundless generosity of bis heart we 
are to receive this boon as a free and volun- 
tary tribute to worth and general eligibility 
as regular customers. Meantime the Islands 
proposed to *' reciprocate " by giving up one 
dollar of revenue where we surrender ten or 
fifteeu. Here's reciprocity for you— reci- 
procity on a Gordon scale and at refinery 
rates. We don't clearly kuow how the 
ratification of this treaty is going to give 
the Islands over to France or England, as 
the CaU says it will, but it is quite clear 
tbat it will prevent < ur getting hold of them. 
Witb an annua) subsidy from us of nearly 
what the petty k'ngdom is worth, there 
would be no inducement for them to come 
into our family. Hawaiian human nature is 
probably not so exceptional in its character 
that it would let go the valuable bird in 
hand to seek the unknown one in the bush. 
The CaU deals entirely too gingerly with 
Gen. McCook, who made ibis treaty, to hint- 
ing that it might have been tbe offspring 
of bis ignorance. The American Minister 
Resident at the Hawaiian Islands could 
hardly be ignorant of tbe effect of such a 
treaty. No, Mr. McCook — beg pardon, the 
Honorable Mr. McCook — is not the poor 
dupe that one might, at first thought, take 
him to be. He is " smart" His smartness 
is of that questionable kind not uncommon 
in American official life, and which consists 
in a general grasping policy, unhappily al- 
ways accompanied by a general pocketing 
one. 



l 



Out or Its Lino. 

The Alta is exceeding its province, which 
is to make mistakes for others to make fun 
of, and now attempts to criticise. A nice 
pretty mess it makes of it in the following 
' editoria: note '' which appeared yesterday : 

However wc may, laach at it, Sir Boyle 
Roche has left an impress of confused meta- 
phor upon English literature which 'hrec- 
qaart^rs of a century have not been sufficient 
to efface. A pretentions bucolic journal 
speaks of a prairie fire with feet, and warns 
buyers against purchasing cattle which "hail* 1 
from Texas. If any of that kind can be 
found, we, on the contrary, would advise in- 
vestment. Cattle that could "hail" from 
Texas would make the fortune of less ener- 
getic men than Barnutn. 

The Alia proves easily that the breed of 
Sir Boyle Rnche is not extinct. We cannot 
see aoythiDg absurd in tbe "preteutious 
bocolic journal's " speaking of a prairie fire 
as if it had feet. It runs over the prairie, 
leaps to the tops of the trees, and the black 
foot-prints of tbe fire-fiend are left behind. 
There may be more trouble in getting the 
bucolic journal off for snyiog that cattle hail 
from Texas, but we think we can do it. In 
the first place, as it is a bucolic journal, it 
may be supposed to know more about cattle 
than the Alia ; in the next place tile expres- 
sion is a pardonable one. When we say a 
man 'haili" from such a place, we mean 
that be reports himself as arriving from that 
place. If a ship hails from China why may 
not a cow hail from Texas ? Neither of 
them can report themselves, but being re- 
ported, they may by an allowable figure of 
speech be said to boil from such and such 
a place Really, Granny Alia should not 
be the one to find fault with others. No 
one stands more in need of charity thaa she 
does. 



for 



The Democratic Alta.. 

The Oakland News says : 

The Examiner suggests a Cabinet 
Grant, a* follows : 

Secretary of State— E. B. Washburne, 
Illinois. 

Secretary of War— W. D. Washburn, Min- 
nesota. 

Secretary of the Treasury— C. C. Wash- 
burn, Wisconsin. 

Secretary of Navy— W. B. Washburn, Mas- 
sachusetts. 

Secretary of Interior— C. A. Washburn, 
California. 

Attorney General— H. C. Washburn, In- 
diana. 

It undoubtedly intends a slur at General 
Grant, but it is at least a great compliment 
to the Washburn family that so many 
brothers ocenpy each high positions that 
they may each one of them be very properly 
mentioned for a Cabinet position. But it is 
not an P. F. V.; therefore more fit Tor 
Democratic scoffs than compliments. 

The -Yews has made a mistake ; the para- 
graph it copies is noi from the Examiner, 
but the Alia. Is it possible that the Alta 
is Democratic and "intends a slur at Gen. 
Grant?" 



THE DOOMED PARTY. 
The party of English tourists who re- 
cently visited the Big Trees are delighted 
with their trip, eo we are informed by tbe 
city press. Tbat party of English tourists 
is on the direct macadamized highway to 
ruin. When a fellow gets to sight-seeing 
in California it's just like gambling, or 
drinking, or going to church festivals; he 
never knows when to let up as long as be 
has a dollar's worth of character left. We 
shall next hear of that party at Tosemite, 
then at tbe Geysers, then at Mount Shasta, 
then at Calistoga, and finally, we shouldn't 
wonder if they would visit Oakland and 
go to see the Blump of that century plant. 
They are bound to run their course of dis- 
sipation ; and if anybody has any word to 
send by them to Queen Victoria he'd better 
dispatch one of them right off, while tbey 
are all sane. Every moment's delay is 
fraught with danger. All who wish to be 
mentioned in the books they will write, 
would do well to send in their names at 
once, eo that they can go in the first chap- 
ter. We intend to have ours in ; and as it 
was nicely printed and spelled correctly in 
the letter-list at the Post Office we just 
took the list down and forwarded the whole 
thing; so any one whose name was on the 
list from E to P, inclusive, needn't take 
any trouble in the matter— it's all fixed for 
those letters. 

>ew 'iear's Resolution. 

Everyone is forming good resolutions for 
the New Year. All should resolve to prac- 
tice economy, and they can do so by patron- 
izing the What Cheer Laundry, where they 
can get their washing done cheaply and well 
aud buy Star shirts, socks, drawers and un- 
der linen at a few cents advance on whole- 
sale prices. *

Dress faults. 

If you are particular in regard to the style 
and fit of your clothes— and what man of 
taste is not? — try J. W. Noetbos, Merchant 
Tailor, 747 Clay street, opposite the Plaza. 
Northon's terms are moderate, and he al- 
ways suits. 



Music Furnished 

For balls, parties, parades, and for all oc- 
casions, on moderate terms. Enquire of A. 
H. Beck, or P. Johanxsex, at the Polka

The Seasons. 

The Summer has passed away even in Cali- 
fornia, and Winter stands at the door. The 
earth is putting on her Winter garb and her 
inhabitants are also adopting a costume 
suited to the season. The fashionable men 
of San Francisco are flocking to the great 
clothing stores of J. R. Meade & Co., at the 
corners of Montgomery and Bush, and Sau- 
some aud Washington, and purchasing those 
durable, fashionable Fall aud Winter suits 
which he is now selling and will continue to 
sell for the next thirty days at such remarka- 
bly low prices. * 

Ose Thousand Dollars Reward will 

be given to any man that can sell Carpets or 
Furniture cheaper than Johs C. Bell. We are 
In'ormed that he makes It a regular business to 
make advances to importers J*-' manufacturers 
on every description of F.-rmture. He 8*116 both

all he wants is tbe commission. He biro sells 
Carpets, Lace Curtains, Marseilles Quilts, and

the same manner. * 

Pure Beverages for the Holtdat 

Tables. — Tbe residents of the southern portion

Betweex the Acts. — Between the acts 

people are too apt to go out of the theatre : we 
do not approve of the fashion, but if they must 
moiBten tbrir clay they cannot find better bev- 
(Tn'i U» driiik than at P. < oitnob's " fnug."

Who Pay 25 Cts. for Two Cigars. 
\r E S E JJ u 

GENUINE HAVANA CIGARS 

MAHUFACTURED BY 

Messrs. WEIL & CO. 
Two for 25 Cents. 



IT SHOULD BE WELL UNDERSTOOD BY 
all smokers tbat no Fine Imported Cigars can 
he retailed for 12.'-,. cents, hence all retailers are 
compelled to sell a Domestic Cigar for a bit, and 
nine smokers out of ten are deluded into the 
Idea that they smoke an imported weed, when 
tbey are puffing at a vile imitation. Many re- 
tailers are supplied by small manufacturers, who 
are unable to procure choice selections of Leitf 
Tobacco, boiDg dependent on other parties for 
their stock, and rarely ge'ling two lois of the 
same quality. It in a FAVORITE TRICK to pack 
DOMESTIC Cigars into IMPORTED boxes to de- 
ceive consumers. MessrB. WEIL b CO. BRAND 
their names on every box of Cigars manufactured 
by them. Their factory is under the immediate 
supervision of Senor FRANCISCO GARCIA, for- 
merly proprietor of the celebrated Garcia Fuctory 
of Havana, Ihey are the largest importers of 
Havaua Leaf Tobacgp on this coast, beeping an 
expe:lenced buyer Co the Island of Cuba the 
entire year. 

This year they haye secured the finest crops 
raised, and for years worked by the following 
well knnwn factories in Havana : " PORTAGAS, " 
"HENRY CLAY." "AGOLLA DE OKO," and 
"CABANAS," parties resident there being re- 
luctant to purchase and niauu'acture on account 
of thft rebellion now existing on that Inland. 
Messrs. WEIL & OO. have the finest selection of 
Havana Leaf Tobacco ever imported into the 
United States, no euch goods ever having left 
Havana before in an UNMANUFACTURED slate. 

Having mode arrangements with them, we 
Bhall keep constantly on hand all of theirbmnds, 
and we earnestly invite the attention of all the 
smokerB of San Francisco to these goods, confi- 
dent that they will give universal satisfaction.

We learo tbat at a meeting of Che Sons 

r the Emerald Isle, held Wednesday 

□ing, Dr. L. Pawlicki wns elected 

^ician of the Society for the ensuing 

twelve months. Sure now, Doctor, when 

were you last in the Emera.d Isle ? Is 

Tawlicki an old family in Drogbeda, or is it 

CouDaught ye came from ? 



TJio TXottlo In»i>. 

Kesterdfty momJog & man named John 

n, iind his wife, got into an altercation 

liouse where thej live, on Baldwin 

Court, during which st)<- stnwk him over the 

head with a heavy bottle, inflicting a aware 

wound. Brown was conveyed to the County 

Hospital Call. 

This little occurrence very aptly illus- 
trates the danger of leaving bottles about 
the house. Muffington confidentially as* 
surea us tbat be always keeps his bottle 
concealed in the wood-shed. 



A. IV© w r»o©t. 

The Call informs an incredulous world 
that the poet says, "There is no cloud so 
black but what it has a silver lining." 
TTe should like to know the poet who 
made use of such English as that. Will 
the Call favor us with his name ? 

Lively H.n<11n^. 

The CalTa department of "Letters from 
too People" continues to be the most 
attractive feature of the paper. On Thurs- 
day it was absolutely spurkliog. It con- 
tained a letter from a pugilist, a reply to a 
pork merchant, and another to a Sabba- 
tarian.

Court, during whitf r , 

Lead with a heavy poetry of the times— or at 
wound. Brown vtf poetry thai finds tbe rfadi- 
Hospital.— Call^^xh the newspaper and maga- 
Thi3 littlQior— ia the poetry of felicitous 
trates Unction. If two poems were to be Bent 
the boe publisher of any popular modern 
8 , Jn *gazine, one of them distinguished for 
...originality, strength of thought, and elevat- 
ing breadth of seutiment, but a trifle imper- 
fect in conbtruction, and the other eupsr- 
ficial in thought, strained in sentiment, bat 
felieitioaa in construction, it is tolerably cer- 
tain that the latter would be accepted, and 
the former, ignoniiiii-.usly rejected* It 
would seem; to a reflective judgment, that 
the popular standard is a false one; that the 
matter shookl be of the firwt importance, and 
the manner of the second. The vefy utmost 
th it felicitous versification can do is to aflurd 
the reader an evanescent pleasure; while 
Btrength of thought and nobility of senti- 
ment are certain to exert a lasting influence 
in elevating, expanding and refining. That 
the husks of things should weigh more in 
popular estimation than the ears they envel- 
ope indicates a warping of Nature and Art 
from the purposes they are combined to ful- 
fill — the dissemination of truths by the aid of 
inspiration. If the method of expression is 
to outweigh what ia expressed — if the man- 
ner is to be Much and the matter Lilipnt — 
give as a dictionary of poeric synonyms and 
we will deluge tbeworklwitb "prize poems." 
Of course, it is as useless to attempt to cor- 
rect popular taste in poetry by argument as 
it is u< correct it in drama. The exotically 
morbid sentimental Urn, shallowness of 
thought and super-nici'y of .mechanism that 
are the distinguishing characteristics of pop- 
ular modern poetry, must be left to react on 
the taste they now satisfy. When Shaks- 
peare ia reinstalled in public favor on the 
stag« we may reasonably look for the resur- 
rection of the soul of Poetry— for some fire 
direct from the gods — to vivify and reani- 
mate tLe showily arrayed butofteu vacuously 
empty forms of contemporanioua verse. 



A Factory 

Of itifernal smells pc-ramulated the streets 
mounted on wheels and driven by a sensitive 
looking man, who appeared to realize his 
ridiculous position. A hose was elevated a 
few feet into the air, which discharged the 
execrable effluvium. The establishment is, 
we understand, one of I)r. Itowell's contriv- 
ances. It is to expel emall-pox by stifling it 
in an intolerable stench. When you have to 
deal with small-pox, there is nothing like 
having a fine practical head in the manage- 
ment of affairs. We learn, by the way, that 
an invoice of Chinese hand-grenades (!) was 
received by the last steamer, and can be se- 
cured at a reasonable figure. They are some 
improvement on Dr. KoweU'B smells, and 
the Chinese physicians — whoso authority is 
certainly entitled to weigh against that of 
Dr. K — , consider them superior, as disin- 
fectants, to chlorine. 



Good Authority. 

The R j says that the Weekly 

Mercury U "uncommonly rich and interest- 
ing in reading matter." Good authority in 
the premises I Wonder if the Mercury has 
as good an opinion of its contemporaries? 



The Wickedest Paper. 

The Golden City is the wickest weekly paper 
published on the Pacific Coast, and, as a 
natural consequence, the liveliest. 



Bastardized. 

The .Napa County Reporter comes to us this 
week with a poem entitled "Lessons," shorn 
of the name of the author, and credited to 
no source whatever. The poem wjtSVritten 
by W. A. Kendall, and was published in the 
Californian (peace toils ashes!} Borne year 
and a half or two years ago. From where did 
the .Reporter "nip" it?

THE ETIQUETTE OF DIGHTTY- 
BETBJBT/TIOK. 

Dignity in journalism, as understood by at 
least two of our loading dailies, may be 
defined as something that prevents a large 
newirpaper from defending itself openly and 
manfully against the criticisms of a small 
one, but does not stand at all in the way of 
a dishonest attempt to injure the business of 
the latter by an undorhand blow at its patron- 
age. Such foul blows, however, are less 
damaging to the bio wee than discreditable to 
the blower. ('Fore Gad, a happy pun!) To 
the former they aro invaluable as an open 
confession that the silent contempt with 
which the larger and duller journal a 
to treat their smaller and sprightlier fellows 
is, after all, only a dignified sham, under the 
supposed necessity fur which those who dis- 
play it in its moat serene and unruffled 
aspect, inwardly chafe and fret and chump 
the self-inflicted bit. like tlie restive donkeys 
that they are. This sort of JOURNALISTIC 
DIGNITY— [Note to compositor.— Put those 
words in your most reverent capitals]— 
proves nothing so much as the correct- 
ness of Sydney Smith's estimate of gravi- 
ty, as illustrated by the aee, tho owl, the 
oyster and the fool. But the course of the 
papers already alluded to (and whose names 
we suppress) proves that to his other expo- 
nents of gravity, Sydney Smith might prop- 
erly have added the knaveftlso. But granting 
(in fact, openly aduitting,) that the amenities 
of dignity permit the nocturnal stab at the 
spine of an ann ying rival too insignificant 
to be met openly in the lists, it yet remains 
to discover by what precept of journalistic 
etiquette is justified the same vicious prick 
at the vitals of a competitor yet unborn, 
whose future course is yet unknown, and 
whose offense can be rank to the prophetic 
nose alone. And here we are jnet by a pair 
of conundrums : How far off in the future 
is the dignified journalistic nose capable of 
smelling a merely hypothetical battle? and 
to what height, at the savor thereof, can this 
divining organ elevate its offending tip with- 
out seriously marring the awful gravity of 
the dignified countenance ? [All correspond- 
ents sending solutions of those riddles, will 
have their communications incontinently 
burned. They have already been solved to 
our entire satisfaction by the highest authori- 
ties, and we only throw them out to mystify 
the vulgar, and to divert their attention from 
the brace of culprits whom we desire the 
pleasure of pursuing and mauling in solitary 
and undivided felicity. J There are other 
questions of etiquette and courtesy connected 
with this subject, for a determination of 
which we might appeal to an intelligent and 
enlightened public— whose judicial acuteness 
is second only to its detestation of flattery — 
and thus settle forever the exact approxima- 
tion made by the culprits aforesaid toward 
the line which separates the higher plane of 
Downright Knavery from the lower level of 
Vulgar Spite. But seriously, we scorn to use 
a public opinion, of our own creation to 
avenge either an actual or an anticipated in- 
jury. Are we right in this? "What say our 
dignified malefactors? publicly sinning, and 
secretly spanked with softest and most stain- 
less palm. 

The "Bulletin's" Letters f rum

Editob firansa Bulletin— -Bar: I am a 
small snob, inhabiting a small house in a 
small Btreet — Silver street. But I have rights. 
I hate a'large man, who lives in a large house

Now, sir, a magnificent band came and played

to inform you that I usually decorate my 
person with these elegancies ; but regret to 
add that, having handled a copy of the Bulle- 
tin the other evening, I had the mortifica- 
tion to peruse, distinctly impressed upon one 
of my new kids — which cost me 75 cents — 
the half of a very unkind atrack upon the 
business interests of a sprightly and inoffen-

of San Francisco are flocking to the great 
clothing stores of J. R. Meade & Co.. at the 
corners of Montgomery and Bush, and Sao-

, fashionable Fall and Winter Baits

Notwithstanding the Deamatic R evie w is 
classed among the "illegitimates," there Is no 
question about its wit being the most 'legitimate" 
of any that enlivens the columns of a San Fran- 
cisco journal. Its paragraphs ere invariably char- 
accerizeo by caDstic humor and tlashmg wit which 
would do credit to l J u<H iuelf, and which is 
" Hyperion to a satyr " in contrast with the impo- 
tent drivel which befogs the columns ol the "legit- 
imate" press. — Golden City

SATI'JIDAY JANUABY 16, 1869 



Letter from New York. 



[FROM ODB BEOOLAB OO It BEST O XDE ST.] 

Is'nw YoaK, December 25th, 1368. 
CUBISTMAfl 
It at hand at last, arid everybody who haa goods 
of any sort, kind or c.'a»», to dupose of, from a nut- 
cracker to na article of virtu, from a grand piano to 
a bub-tmle J canary bird, from a bantam rooetar to 
a «et of boxiug ttlovea, prefixes the words, "holi- 
day presents." to their advertisements of the same* 
Of course, all the theatres, concert balls, and cir- 
cuses are in " full bloat," but thero eeema to be a 
general disposition on the part of the different 
manigemen>s to bong on to the productions now 
under way, lelying on the predisposition of folks in 
general, to till anything with the name of a thoatre, 
during the coming fortnight. 

Wallace's theatre. 
However, is a marked exception to the general 
rule, as a rapid succession of old time favoritet, 
follow e.itih other with a general excellence of ren- 
dition and exactness of the smallest minu/a that 
merit and bring forth the commendation of the 
moot inveterate fault-finder, In the Captain of the 
Watch, Lester w al lack's " Viscount de Ligny " is 
well worth markingwith a whitestone in the mem- 
ory of ptay-goere ; bnt the character as personated 
by him, bos been too often criticised to need 
further notice now. This pieco, together with 
Woodcock' i Little Garni-, will be re-produced on Sat- 
urday; meanwhile we have The Wonder and Speed 
the Ptuugh to fill out the interim. 

AT THE BHOACWAY, 
Mr. and Mrs, Barney Williams have fallen npon a 
very Ei Dorado of popularity in the Emerald Ring' 
which will ptobably hold the boards till impudent 
Barney's engagement concludes. 

AT THE NEW TOBK 
The Worrell Sisters continue in Barbt Sieve, 
which is, hnwovdr, beginning to pall upon the taste 
of the public, and but for the personal popularity 
of the Sisters, might not prove as successful as 
those charming sylphs could desire. 
PTKE'8 OPERA HOUSE. 
Mr. Fink, the purchaser of Pike's Opera House, 
is sparing no effort to render it the most magnifi- 
cent place of amusement (our new Court House 
excepted,) in the country. Mr. Tayleure, hereto- 
fore manager of the Olympic, has been engaged by 
the great railroad director to " run the machine" 
at this establishment. We hear it is to be called 
the "Grand Theat e,"and ■ lready a newcnanael.er 
has been hung in the dome of the vestibule, with 
»evenfcy- eight imitaiion wax-lights, as a foretaste of 
the dazzle and g itter that may be expected. Well, 
if Mr. iayleme can't do it, nobody can, as the un- 
precedented success of H. D, fully proves. What 
neculinr class of entertainment ia to be given does 
not tra >Bpire. 

AT NLBLO'S GARDLN •' 

J/Ict bark will soon be eucceeded by the 
Lydia Thompson Burlesque Troupe, heretofore 
performing at Wood's Museum in &*wi,or The Man 
at the Wheel Miss Lydi. is dlssaiisfied with the 
receipts a-, the tarter touse. 

AT THE NEW YORE CIHCCS, 

A novelty called Blue Beard <m Horseback ii to be 
brought out, with two perform-uoes each day 
daring the holidays. 

THE HIBERNIAN HTNSTREL8 
Are, as their name suggests, an organization who 
endeavor to comtine the cbaract rislic" guffaw " 
of Cuffy with the brogue of Old Ireland; two very 
unpromising elements, we should think, to produce 
tt thorough mixture from. They appeared last 
night ut the Apo'lo Hall 'or the firet lime. 

THE LECTUBE SEASON. 

At Cooper Institute, Dr. J, F. Boynton gave t*ie 
sixth and last of his series ef lectures last night; 
subject, " The Mast don and Mammoth Period," 
which be delivered in his usual happy and Borne- 
what hum r us style. Mr. E. P. Whipple also lee 
tnred at Lyric Hall on " LoaBng and w, ir lo D g ( » and 
the Kt-v, Matthew Hole smi b on " Our Times and 
Old Times," at an up town church, 
OBI njABY. 

One of Bonner's ramc-us stud of h^raea, the "Au- 
burn Horse." departed this li e about a week ago. 
He was sx years old, and ia deeply lamented by all 
his friends and acquaintances. Rumor says he Will 
ho buried in the family vault In Greenwood, with 
this insciptioo on his monument: ''He'll never go 
2:40 dowo the plank road any nn.re." We don't 
vouch lor this, as we have no personal knowledge in 
the premises. 

JOtJENALISTIO ADVICE. 

Pome of our journals are advismg all the single 

females of Gotham to emigrate to California, where 

they say that a lady's difficulty is notwnom she 

shall accep:. but whom she shall not accept. 

" THE LIGHT OF HOME " 

la a new Christmas at ry, writttn by John 
Brougham, which is about to be placed before the 
public by the American News Company. It is or the 
fleuflational school, aud ends with poetic justice 
to all parties. It is said to h " deuced interesting." 
A STEEPLE SMOKES. 

Several days ago, smoke was seen issuingfrom the 
Bteeple of Trinity Ohurch, acd the " pio-j:?rauds " 
in Wall street were much exercised nn'H it was 
discovered that adamag*d flue was the cause of the 
"cloud." 

AN AMERICAN MOTTO. 

"United we stand, divided we fall," is a pecu- 
liarly Amer.can motto, as was proved the ol her day 
in one of o-x courts, when the three live wives of 
one gentlemaa banded together for the more cer- 
tain punishment of the g«y Lothario, and conversed 
and plotted in the most smicable manner possible.

BENEFICENCE. 

One of the pleasantest features of Christmas 
time in New York city ia the display of practical 
charity by the various benevolent institutions aud 
assuciauuus ol private individuals. Thousands of 
poor persons, utterly without the means of liveli- 
hood, are, on Ch.istmas day, provided with good 
and aubstantit.1 dinners. At the Five Points Mis- 
Bion. the headquarters of the Children's Aid So- 
ciety, Randall's Island, and the various orphan 
asylums and soldiers' homes, particular care is 
taken or the little ones. It is very pleasant to see 
them grouped around the long tables, partaking of 
luxuries to which they are strangers daring the 
rest of the year, and going away afterwards with 
little package? of Christmas gifts. This year, the 
Children's A dety propose sending all the little 

guests at the ^oristmas dinner, who aro willing to 
go, to homes in the West, having provi ed 2,286 
persons with such homes during thB year. 

WLLLUM CTJLLEN BRYANT 
Has taken nj. his residence in this city for the 
inter, forsake for once the retirement of the 
Bryant homestead. 

FROM HEAD TO FOOT. 

Ae, with the season devoted to gifts, paterfamilias 

grows less economical, and bachelor uncles and 



maiden auuta. and all such useful relatives, more 
generous, the girl of the period, also the boy. glitter 
on the sidewalk of Broadway as they never glittered 
before. New hats, new cloaks, new furs, new shoes, 
new gloves, new everything: How they manage it 
we do not know, but everybody, at least everybody 
feminine, appears to be always in spick-and-span, 
bran-new attire, from h- ad to foot. At weddings, 
particularly, th e peculiarity is most manifest. We 
heard a dressmaker remark, the other day, "Miss 

's wedding was a splendid thing; everybody 

was there. There was a blue velvet «nd a brown 
velvet — hey were boih ours— and a purple satin, 
and a green brocade, and a pearl-colored eilk— that 
was her mother— and a pale blue — that was her Bis- 
ter — and ever so many very distinguished oaaaels- 
hair shawls with bonnets on, who came in carriages, 
and the whole thing would have done credit to the 
best dress- making establishment in Paris!" 
HOW LAl.IlJt ARE KNOWN. 
Ladies, non-a-days, are known altogether by their 
suits. For instanc. we say Jones is engaged to 
that pretty black reps, trimmed with orange color, 
who walks out with him every evening; or, Perkins 
is paying attention to that dowdy lavender peplin 
without any ponier who sits in the next pew. Ae 
for (aces, wh t with pearl powder, and bats thai 
overshadow the nose, on the promenade they are 
all alike. Hair is worn, or supposed to be worn, as 
it grows — straight down the ba< k, and all about the 
face In a high wind. Young m«n from | he country 
believe in it, but New Yorkers know too much to be 
taken in. The floating tresses are pinned on, just 
as frequently as are the chignons, and as for the 
golden hair, it is half the time produced by the 
"painless p'ocess:" something mysterious, which 
is done with a<-ids, hot iron, etc., and is sure (so 
says the hairdresser whose confidence we enjoy} to 
ruin the " 'air of the 'ed, if not the 'ealth." 

LAST NEW TOY. 

7 he last new toy, manufactured, we presume, by 
order of Saint Nicholas, ia a troop of automatons 
about siz inches in height' — father, mother, and 
infant child. The father deposits th« child in a 
wheelbarrow, the mother pursues them, and the 
two eldest of the group produce aseund which is 
supposed to be tutking to each other, the male 
figure saying "mamma" and the female "papa." 
They have also a toy or a pair of toes, calculated to 
strengthen the already splendidly developed bump 
of reverence in the heads of koung America: an 
old lady and old gentleman— he with a bowl of 
soup, she with her knitting. On being jogged, thej, 
nod their heads for half an hour or bo, in exact imi- 
tation of very old and imbecile people. This, we 
have noticed, grandmammas and grandpapas do not 
purchase for their " children's children." 



Elejjraxitly Served. 

Nothing is more enjoyable than an ele- 
gantly served meal, composed of the beBt 
articles the market affords. Such a meal can 
be procured at Swath's Rejtacbaht, 636 
Market etrcot. * 



A FAREWELL CARD. 

Fds Figaro:— The proprietor of the Royal Ital- 
ian Circus, being about to take his departure, with 
his entire troupe, for Panama and south America. 
takes this occasion to tender his heartfelt thanks 
for the many acts of kindness and courtesy of 
which he has been the recipient during bis recent 
season in this city and the interior of California. 
The remarkable success which everywhere atten- 
ded these performances, was most gratifyixg- 
provingas it does that the public appreciated his 
efforts to please them, and that they will always 
liberally support equestrian and arenio entertain- 
ments of a high order of merit. To the Press and 
Public of this citj , bis especial gratitude is due for 
numerous favors. He proposes to return during 
the ensuing spring, with large accessions to his 
company, and make a tour through this and ad- 
joining States, presenting a succession of novel- 
ties, far surpassing all his previous efforts to amuse 
and interest the public.

A RICA DEPOSIT. 
Upon bearing of ihe discovery of that 
pecu;,ious *teloton in the debris of the fish 
market "Q Clay st eet, onr foreman and a'l 
irs, carriers and collectors, 
with an ample delegation from the editorial 
corps, incontinently broke for the new dig- 
fcinjrs. The net proceeds of their search 
anions; the rubbish hiving fceen assorted and 
labelled, we are able to give our readers an 
inventory of t^em, with the understanding 
fhat no'ie of them will be surrendered to 
claimants unices the latter will pay for this 
notico. Proving property is entirely unnec- 
essary. One Jng, hairlesa, bloated and un- 
savory; supposed to be a '49-er. Does not 
answer to any name that wo have yet beea 
able to think of, but his appearance is 

strongly suggestive of Lazarus. One jack 

tlulevr Charles First ; supposed to be 
a portion of a gambler** assets, concealed 
from his creditor.-* by an ingenious coating of 
rust. A brick, bearing the imprint of the 
New York manufacturer. The hat of which 
this was the adjunct was snatched from our 
discovering devil by a reporter of the Alia, 
without credit. A dirty stocking of great 
general interest ; evidently antedating by 
some centuries the Mission Woollen Mills. 
At the di-po^al of the Academy of Sciences. 
Head of a sturgeon. Dito of a Lake Bigler 
tront. Ditto of a ljb-ter, unboiled. The 
major part of a pick-handle, much decayed, 
with many tender associations and potato- 
sprouts cli'gingabout it. Three old ha!ters, 
showing evidence of having been used by 
Vigilantes in the days of swift justice, to 
string tip mules. Half a comb — fine tooth 
portion. An antique undershirt, an inde 
scribable brass thing, two monstrosities in 
tTie way of foot attire, a detached button and 
a portion of the correlative suspender. Hi.— 
torians, antiquarians, sentimental editors and 
the small pox hospital supplied gratis with 
everything in their line. The remainder will 
be given to the City Missionary Society. 



Charm lnj<. 

Some idiot who calls himself "Lorgnette," 
writes — to the AUa, of course — a particularly 
patronizing and particularly senseless letter 
of advice to the patrons of the New Cali- 
fornia Theatre- He forestalls criticism upon 
himself thus : 

Of coarse, some little pappy will come oat and 
sa.v wo wont to be .snobb sh. Call i eo. if you wilt 
There are always people to sneer at anything Lim- 
ing at irttirtemtn". T^oee sort of n*-ople call a 
persoj* "blunted aristocrat.", whn Hires » clean. 
»owe] to wipe on. and wno don t swal'ow his knife 
when be eats. -Never mind, let them sneer. 

" Lorgnette " need not bear being called 
snobbish: he is evidently an honest mechanic. 
A man who deliberately writes " (hose sort 
of people," and contracts "does not" into 
" don't," is not likely to be called a bloated 
aristocrat, however much of a penchant he 
may have for clean towels, or however great 
may be bis aversion to the deglutition of 
cold steel. There is this to be 6aid of aris- 
tocrats however bloated : they know how to 
use the Queen's English. " Aiming at re- 
finement,'* indeed ! 



IVcws for -J nl icn Martinetti. 

We find the following statement in the 
Occident, a religious paper published in this 
city. Thc^Occidfitt does not religiously stick 
to the truth. 

Julien Martinetti, a prominent member of 
the ctlebrated Martinetti Tioupe, died of 
small pox, last week, on board a government 
steamship at Mare Island. 

Julien must have been rather startled if 
he read the Occident on Saturday, atlearning 
that he had tone on board a government 
steamship for the purpose of dying of the 
small-pox. 
Tii© " x^igrai-o." 

Among the elegant " surroundings" which 
the New California Theatre has c^Sa into 
existence, that pretty little symposium bear- 
ing the above popular title, is one of the 
most notable. It is just across the street, 
and ia precisely the place to obtain refresh- 
ments during the entre-actes. Mr. Herman 
Duhno, the affable proprietor, disdains to 

pass anything over his countet that io uoi 

the very best of its kind. Choice wines, li- 
quors and cigars are his specialty • 



ME. BULLS" ALLEGED A1HEHM. 
The British mind seems to be peculiarly 
exercised at present in determining whether 
or no John Stuart Mill, the ptofoundest 
thinker of his age, is an atheist. And this 
in spite of, probably to a great extent because 
of, Mr. Mills* persistent refusal to enlighten 
society upon a Bubject, any questioning in 
relation to which ho resents as an imperti- 
nence. There is no doubt that the popular 
belief in his atheistic opinions contributed 
largely to his defeat in the late Parliamentary 
canvass. 8o evident was it that such would 
bo the result, that, during the canvass, one 
of his most ardent supporters addressed him 
a letter asking him to publicly deny the 
charge. This he plainly docKnod to do, re- 
ferring parties to his nnmerone writings 
already before the world. Had these been 
properly understood by the anxious inquirers, 
no such question could ever have arisen. 
Philosophically, Mr. Mill is undoubtedly an 
atheist ; and philosophically, every philoso- 
pher, is such. No philosopher who baa ever 
written a line accepts the popular idea of a 
deity ; and for the reason that the popular 
idea of God is too grossly materialistic— or, 
as they would term it. anthropomorphous— to 
command respect. As a writer in a recent 
number of a British periodical says, it 
"seems to bo merely an exaggerated concep- 
tion ofia human despot, infinitely more pow- 
erful and infinitely more cruel and vindictive, 
and who can be propitiated only by childish 
formalities, and alject and servile adulation." 
To the philosophic mind, trained to the exer- 
cise of pure reason alone, and dealing with 
o jly the spiritual and mental side of nature, 
such a conception, if not absolutely impossi- 
ble, is certainlyrevolting. If atheism means 
a disbelief in such a deity as this— and that 
it does we have the united testimony of the 
Church in all its forms— Mr. Mill's " numer- 
ous writings " afford abundant proof that 
their author is unquestionably an atheist ; 
but the " numerous writings" of most other 
men of thought and stndy furnish equal evi- 
dence that fbey are in the same intellectual 
boat. The idols which the clumsy popular 
mind rough-hews in its own" image from the 
base metals upon which alone it can work, 
are not likely to command respect from the 
cunning artists of philosophic thought, when 
placed alongside of those struck out of Nature 
by the chisel of their own keen intellects. 
Whether Mr. Mill, while rejecting our deity, 
acknowledges allegiance to one of his own, 
we have no means of determining, and it is, 
as he plainly tells us, none of our business. 



San Franclso Herald. 

The ten years' slumber of the journal 
bearing the above title does not appear to 
have involved that obliviousness of passing 
events which characterized the somniferous 
hero ol Sleepy Hollow. It rises with re- 
newed youth, like the fabled Phcenix, from 
the ashes of the past, and appears to have 
strength enough in its (o) pinions to give

Vcloclpediann. 

The vigorous young tChletes of the Olym- 
pic Club, Have gone into the velocipede busi- 
ness pretty extensively, and as the excitement 
is almost as catching as the small-pox, and 
the exercise as exhilarating as champagne, 
many of our citizens are becoming aaiicted 
with a mild type of tbV malady, and as Boon 
as the manufacturers can turn ont enough of 
the vehicles to satisfy the demand, it is ex- 
pected that all the horSw will be turned ont 
to grass and every man will be his own 
groom. The Tones has the lollowing on the 
subject : 

Velocipedes are becoming the prevailing 
epidemic in San FfaTKfi&co. To be able tS 
ride a velocipede with ease and safety is the 
night of accomplishments. At first veloci- 
pediste dreaded to take the streets for fear of 
tbe treacherous character of the toward 
wheel of the machine. But they are now 
beginning to come forth like bees from a line. 
and they can be Been on the streets at most 
any hour of the day. Yelocipedestrianista 
is becoming more and! more prevalent every- 
honr. Old and yonng, males and females, 
are taking lessons in privato, and as soon as 
they become experts wo may expect a perfect 
outpouring of these two-wheeled vehicles 
with their riders. We actually saw, yester- 
day, a noted divine, with coat off, pants 
t'u-ked in his boots, and sweating like a 
farmer in a harvest field, in his efforts to 
keep np a respectable bait on bis velocipede, 
and not have the thing turn over. We are 
informed that an enterprising gentleman has 
determined t-j rent the* Mecbauic's Institute 
Pavilion and to open a velocipede school in it. 



SUl>ei*£tteIn 

Is still to be found at 502 Kearny street, 
dispensing those fine shirts and unapproach- 
able ties at fabulously low prices. * 

Attention, Ladies! — Fine perfume, toilet- 
boxes, photograph albums, and. in fact, any of the 
fine impoited French fancy goods, can be found at 
Martin Haas', 221 Kearny street, between Bush 
and Sutter streeta._ • 

The Jewels* Fair.— There are probably 
but few persons residing on tho Pacific coast, who, 
on coming to San Francisco, do not make it a

DWTRIBUTED F^REK. 



NE3DAI JANUARY 20, 1869 



Tho Reason. 

Most of the newspapers have (-ailed Signor 
Chiariui " the Napoleon of equestrianism." 
Boggles who is a very matter-of-fact nan, 
said the other day that he couldn't see any 
sense in calling Cbiarim "Napoleon," be- 
cause he was a. clover equestrian and circus 
man; and M offing ton explained the matter 
as follows : "Don't you know that Napoleon 
wa* the best rider in the world and could 
beat all the circus riders that ever wore- or 
ever will be ? Haven't you seen that picture 
of him crossing the Alps? There's a feat 
for you! There isn't a horse living now- 
adays tbitt o uld stand in that position, nor 
a man that could ride him. That's why they 
call Chiarini ' the Napoleon of the c rcuB.' '' 
Boggles, calling the picture to mind, was 
convinced of the propriety of tho tiile. 



Insane. 

The Jurors who pronounced Henry Quanto 
Kiii tv of burglary, have signed a petition to 
Gov. Slight for bis pardon. They Bay that, 
up'>n the trial of the case, itwaa manifest that 
the defendant, though technically guilty, way 
five from thai deliberate purpose to commit 
crime which distinguished a continued crim- 
inal. — Call. 

We faDcy he was insane. That is, he was 
insane at the time he committed the burglary. 
He was no doubt sane just before, and when 
he was arrested, but he was insane at the pre- 
cise instant he committed the crime. Being 
" free from that deliberate purpose to com- 
mit crime which distinguishes a confirmed 
criminal " is in a burglar in itself a sign of 
insanity. The only trouble is that the jurors 
hadn't read the scock trial before 

trying Quanto. If they had, they would have 
brought in a verdict on the ground of insan- 
ity at once.

Muffington calls Frank Bret Harte'sOpen- 
*ng Address, written for the California 
Theatre. " a poem of six spasms." •

THE " PULSOPHILITE." 

▲ Blvi»l «b the Tel<»cl a*de— A Hand Pro- 
peller which "pulU-aw-fni-llBht" — A. 

InxnrlniM C-irrlna-— Mcoraotion made 
eiuy-5fo laalructlon rt qui red. 

Some two months ago, when the news of the 
excitement ovir veloeip* dee existing in Paris and 
consequently in New York, first began to be talked 
ol m thia city. Mr. William A Birch, whose olever 
polygraphic entertainments in^his city have ren- 
dered hira well-known to the public, conceived tbe 
idea o inventing a »ehio1e to be propelled by bodily 
force, which should have all the advantages and 
none of the drawbacks of the French velooipede. 
The disadvantages he found to be— first, the diffi- 
culty with which people loarncd to propel this new 
vehicle: secondly, the necessity of continuing at a 
rapid rate of spend ; thirdly, tbe uncomfortable 
stile of seat; and, fourthly, the impossibility of 
driving it upon incline. Mr. Birch has invented a 
vehicle whioh he calls the pulsophilite, which is to 
be propelled by hand power. The wheete are five 
feet in diameter. By a peculiar arrangement of 
©ranks, an immense lever-power is obtained and a 
pressure of one nound will move it with ease on a 
level rood. Unlike the velocipede, the pulsophilite 
has two parallel wheels, and the propelling power is 
attached to both of tbem. On an ordinary read a 
crank of five inches te used, but another crank of 
twelve inches ib attached, which gives sufficient 
lever-power to enable the driver to ascend a steep 
incline. The axle is disconnected in the centre 
and the machine may be turned witi the greatest 
ease. No instructions are required to make any 
oneaperfcoti master of this vehicle; a obi Id can 
immediately on seating itself for the first time 
drive it with as much ease aaa man. A comforta- 
ble seat is slnng on the axle, and by moans of a 
weighted balancing pole; which is lengthened or 
shortened as occasion may require, adapts itself to 
the weight of the propeller. An arrangement to 
secure their drapery from reaching the ground, 
renders the pulsophilite particularly suited to 
ladies. The exertion required to propel it is very 
slight, as we have before stated, and it can te 
driven fast or slow, at the option of the propeller, 
and oan also be stopped at will. While the veloci- 
pede is something of a gymnastic apparatus, the 
pulsophiii e partakes more of the. nature of a 
^uxorious carriage. The arrangement of the cranks 
give it, it is claimed by the inventor, more than 
double the power of the French ve'ooipede. After 
much time spent in experimentalixing, Mr. Birch 
at length completed a model of a vehicle which he 
was satisfied possessed all the advantages over the 
French velocipede, .at the attainment of which he 
aimed, and placed it in tbe hands of Kimball & Co., 
the well-known carriage builders, at the corner of 
Bryant aod Fourth Streets, who undertook to con- 
struct a working machine from it. This will in tbe 
course of a few days be competed, and a public 
exhibition of its powers will be given ."^Mr. Birch 
has made arrangements for securing a patent for 
his invention, and if the pulsophilite comes fully 
np to his expectations, it will prove a formidable 
rival to the velocipede, if indeed it does not en- 
tirely drive it from the field. Mr. Birch has been 
long enough, in this State for us to claim him as a 
Oaliforniao. and the pulsophilite may certainly be 
termed a California invention. We wish it success. 
and hope it will bring both fame and fortune to the 
ingenious inventor.

Several enterprising gentlemen, desirous of af- 
fording our citizens an opportunity of becoming 
acquainted with the use of the- velooipede, have 
leased the Mechanics' Institute building, for tbe 
purpose of giving [instructions in the science of 
managing this machine. The capacious building 
is as admirably adapted for this purpose as if ithad 
been constructed with that object in view. Its vast 
area gives ample room for the manipulation of the 
machines. The floor from north to south is nearly 
level, while from west to east it has a sufficient in- 
cline to carry the machine down without propul- 
sion; thus allowing »he beginner to learn to main- 
tain his balance before trying tbe somewhat diffi- 
cult experiment of placing his feet on the treadles. 
Fnll printed instructions are posted in the hall, 
while obliging attendants are ready to show pupils 
how to manage the machine. A number of our 
most respectable citizens— including an eminent 
bnt somewhat eccentric divine — assemble every 
afternoon for exercise and instruction. Several 
ladies are also becoming initiated into tbe'myster- 
ics of this invigorating exercise : and if the sex can 
see the wisdom of emancipating themselves from 
the prndiBhnes9 which compels them to adopt »o 
unnatural and unsafe a position in equestrian ex- 
ercise, we may at no distant day expect to see them 
become adepts in a method of locomotion which 
possesses such advantages ovejr ordinary pedestri- 
anism. Although the school bos been hat a few 
days in operation, many learners have already be- 
come quite proficient, and. barring occasional tum- 
bles in which no bones are broken, they can now 
propel their "animals" around the building at a 
rate of speed which excites the envy of those who 
have not yet succeeded in overcoming the incipient 
difficulties of its management. 

A tyro's eipebience on the velocipede. 
Without attempting to give any instructions in 
regard to the management of the machine— which 
can be imparted on the spot to those who desire to 
learn— we might, from the stand-point of personal 
experience, give an inkling of some of the sensa- 
tions of a novice while being initiated into the 
mysteries of velocidestrianism. The first feeling, 
on bestriding the bicycie, and resting one's weight 
upon the saddle, is that of utter inability to main- 
tain the necessary equilibrium. The tendency to 
topple over appears to be insurmountable by any 
skill which the learner can hope to attain. It is 
difficult for him to see how any vehicle having but 
two wheels, one directly in advance ot the other, 
can be made to stand or run upright, unless held 
bo by some extraneous means. A little reflection, 
however will remind him that any kind of a disk 
—as a wheel or ring— if propelled along the ground, 
will maintain its erect position so long as it keeps 
in motion ; and that the same principle of centrifu- 
gal force which bears up ,the disk and keeps the 
epinning-top erect, maintains the equilibrium of 
the velocipede wh:le in motion. The handle of the 
machine is to be grasped firmly in the bands of the 
rider, and when skillfully manipulated it acts in a 
certain sense as a balance pole; the handle guides 
the fore wheel in any direction, while a, quick turn 
toward the side to which the learner feels himself 
falling, wiH restore tbe balance, until at length it 
can be maintained with hot little effort, The be- 
ginner will find it hard work, and will encounter 
many falls and perhaps a few scratches; hut he 
should not feel discouraged at these mishaps ; if he 
cannot always maintain his equilibrium be can at 
least preserve his equanimity, and success will 
finally crown his efforts. He will, after a few les- 
sons, be surprised and delighted to find that he 
can place first one and then both feet on the pedals, 
and glide down the hall with the velocity and free- 
dom of the wind, 

velocifide totjbnaments. 
It is con'emplated by the managers of tbe new 
school to give a series of grand tournaments, in 
which both sexes will contend for prizes, and to 
which the public will be admitted for a trifling fee. 
The school already numbers several experts, one of 
whom we saw go round the ball at the rate of a 
mile in 3:30, Onr popular fellow townsman. A— x 
B— d— m, Esq., has attained remarks' le skill, and 
will probably carry off some of the honors of the 
approaching contest; while Dr. S— d— r will doubt- 
less give some younger men a lively tarn in more 
senses than one. These tournaments are already 
very popular in the eastern citieB. At a recent ex- 
citing race at Pike's Music Hall in Cincinnati, three 
valuable prizes were awarded, tbe first of which 
was carried off amid the plaudits of a large and en- 
thusiastic audience, by Mr. W, W. Grew, who ac- 
complished a third of a mile in 1:16. The third 
prize was for the person who could ride the veloci- 
pede at the slowest gait — a very delicate task, and 
requiring careful judgment and a good deal of fine 
management. This was won by-Mr. Miller, who 
occupied 5:10 in doing a third of a mile. 

THE VELOCIPEDE AS A LABOB- Saving aiACHCTE, 
1 he velocipede is not alone to be considered as a 
toy or plaything, but it will be found to materially 
lessen the time and labor now Expended in pedes- 
trianism. and to be a positive blessing to those who 
cannot afford tie luxury of horse-flesh— indeed we 
question whether many will not prefer it even to 
the saddle animal, as being less troublesome and 
requiring no care: It is extensively need in Paris 
by messengers and letter carriers, and even by mer- 
chants in going from their residences to their pla- 
ces of business. We feok to see the time when the 
substantial Front-street merchant will, at the con- 



clusion of tbe day'a business, order John to bring 
up the velocipede, bestride it with mingled dignity 
and grace, and reach his home at the Mission in 
about ten minutes, without an effort. 

THE MACHINE A>T> ITS M ANCTACTUBEE5. 

The accompanying engraving represents the Vel- 
ocipede manufactured by Palmer, Knox A Co. of 
this city. These enterprising gentlemen have in- 
troduced a number of improvements on the French 
machine, and those now turned ont by them are 
models of lightness and strength. The only trouble 
is that they cannot make them fast enough to sup- 
ply the rapidly increasing demand. As 'there is no 
patent on tbe vehicle, other parties will doubtless 
embark in the enterprise, and it is rumored that 
tbe extensive carriage house of Kimball A Co. are 
about to go into the manufacture of velocipedes on 
an extensive scale— in which case we may hope that 
tbe demand (till soon be supplied. 

SPEED OF THE VELOCIPEDE. 

The Velocipede can only be used to advantage 
under the favorable conditions of smooth and level 
roads. Wo glean the following Information in re 
gard to it from the American Artisan .* 

The speed attained by the swifter kind of French 
velocipedes averages from tw» Ive to thirteen nr les 
an hour; adepts find no difficulty whatever in ac- 
complishing fully fifty miles within five hours 
without once alighting from their vehicles. A 
couple of amateurs making a tour through a part 
of France challenged e*cb other as to which could 
perform the greatest distance within four-and- 
twenty hours. One gave in after having accom- 

Slished 87 miles; the other went on on addit onal 
1 miles, making 123 miles in all. On the 21st of 
September lost, a party of nine quitted houen 
early in the morning, mounted on velocipedes and 
arrived in Paris in time for dinner tbe same eve- 
ning, having performed the distance of 85 mites, 
exclusive 01 stoppage, at a rate of speed averaging 
ten and eleven miles an hour. It should be under- 
stood that, in impelling a velocipede, the limbs are 
not constantly in motion ; as on level ground, when 
t e impetus ie at an average rate, or when the ma- 
chine is descending an incline, tbe feet may be 
removed from the pedals, and the legs be placed on 
the bar fixed in front of the velocipede for this 
purpose. A slight impulsion given to the vehicle 
from time to time suffices to keep up the speed. 
The ascent of an incline greater than one foot 
in twenty-five feet is considered difficult if not 
impracticable. When the rider, therefore, en- 
counters a hill of more than the average steep- 
ness, ho has to dismount and lead his velocipede 
with hU hand, which, we are told, he ean do with 
almost the same ease as ne can carry an ordinary 
walking-stick, 

C WHAT CITIES IT CAS BE BEST USED. 
Perhaps few cities in Ameroiaare •owell adapted 
for the use of the velocipede as Paris. In that 
city, the regularity and' smoothness of the stroet 
pavements are extremely favorable to this exercise, 
and the excitable Parisians of both sexes and all 
conditions of society have almost "gone daft* 
over this fascinating machine, which, although not 
altogether new in principle, has never until re- 
cently, been brought tosuoh a state of perfection* 
as to make it practicable for ordinary use. Among 
American cities. Philadelphia, being spread over a 
large area of level land, is perhaps the best adapted 
for its use. Boston, is too hilly, and the streets too 
narrow; but its suburbs are full of wide and beau- 
tiful avenues, in good passable condition at e early 
all seasons of the year. New York, is too crowded 
for the safe use of so delicate a machine; but its 
magnificent* Central Park— unlike the sandbanks 
which our amiable cit* fathers have delegated to 
ns as a "park"— is admirably adapted for its use, 
and during the coming summer will doubtless be 
thronged with eager seekers after health and pleas- 
ure combined in this favorite exercise. In San 
Francisco, the level portions of the city, east of 
Kearny and south of Geary streets, are *11 practi- 
cable for velocipede travel, provided the streets 
are kept free from accumul t ions of mud and sand. 
The Cliff Honse road affords an admirable avenne 
for this exercise :,and Captain Foster would doubt- 
less welcome iho weary vetocipedestrian with as 
much cordiality as if |he came in a coach -and- four. 
The road has however, some grades which can 
only be ascended by a strong and expert rider. The 
ocean beach i- almost impracticable, as the narrow 
wheels sink in the Band, and the exercise becomes 
too laborious to be pUasant. 



THAT "PSYCHOLOGICM. EXPOSURE!" 

Dr. Benton at the Albambra- The Alta 
Krpurtcr fooled— A. Challenge rand an 
Accept. nee— AmuilriK Contest to come 
off to-morrow night ot the aanae place. 

When it was announced that on last Sunday eve- 
ning Dr. Benton and assistants would give some 
Btrange experiments in psychology or animal mag- 
netism, at the Albambra Theatre, the wiseacres of 
tbe antediluvian Alia put their heads together and 
determined that Bnch " hnmbuggery" should be 
exposed and the perpetrators thereof held up to 
publio scorn. True, psychology baa long since 
passed from the domain of the speculative to that 
of the actual aoienoes, and is everywhere recog- 
nized by scientific men as an accomplished fact; 
but, its discovery having transpired at a period 
subsequent to the deluge, the AUa people had not 
as yet been able to see through it; so they sent one 
of their young men up to "expose" it; and the 
aforesaid verdant jouth exposed— his own ignorance 
in his report. It i& scarcely necessary to detail how, 
this young man was bamboozled by the stories of a 
mischievous boy, who of his own volition came on 
the stand, and was not claimed by the Doctor to be 
under the mysterious influence ai all— for has it not 
already been aetailed in these columns ? Suffice it 
to Bay that the spiri ■, ol the usually amiable Doctor 
has been aroused, and he now challenges the fullest 
investigation, as maybe seen bvacard in another 
column. It is proposed that the believers and dis- 
believers in psychology—or at least in the Doctor's 
powers in the interpretation of that science — shall 
assemble in mass meeting at the Albambra Theatre 
to-morrow evening, And subject the matter to a 
conclusive practical test. It is rumored that the 
Alta reporter has accepted the Doctor's challenge. 
The belligerent will be on band fully armed for the 
contest — the Doctor clad in a glittering panoply of 
philosophic truth, and using a bag of twenty-dollar 
pieces as a shield ; the Alta reporter will bear as a 
lance an enormous goose quill— plucked from the 
identical bird which onoe saved Borne, and which 
is now connected with the AUa office— while a bag 
of half-dollars will serve as a shield to protect his 
delicate person from the shafts of the irate Doctor. 
The following plan for conduoting the contest 
has been agreed upon : A small boy will be 
brought upon the stage, and as soon as the 
Doctor shall pronounce him to be under psy- 
chological influence, he will cause him to ex- 
tend his hand, and upon his outstretched palm — 
or if that should prove too small, then upon 
a table — the AUa man will proceed to place half- 
dollar pieces, one at a time, and the Doctor wil[ 
alternate each one with a twenty-dollar gold piece. 
As the AUa man is probably backed by his affluent 
proprietors, while the Doctor is said to be sustained 
Ln this matter by the Bank of California, this little 
financial coneBt is likely to continue until a, good 
sized pile is accumulated. The boy will then be 
informed that if he can close his outstretched 
fingers upon that glittering array of " twenties," 
they shall become bis property , after deducting 
from tbem the equivalent of the silver upon the 
table, which goes to the sceptical reporter, who in 
torn loses all his half-dollars in case of the failure 
of the hoy to accomplish this very simple feat 
When we reflect upon tbe influence of the tempt- 
ing luore upon j nvenile as well as mature minds, we 
may conjecture that tne youngster will strive pretty 
hard after that pile. What will be the result of 
this singular experiment we hesitate to conjecture. 
but we hazard nothing by asserting that if it is 
carried out on the terms proposed, that on next 
Monday morning, either the Bank of California 
will become a "busted" institution, or the pro- 
prietors of the AUa will be a rained community. 
At any rate, everybody will be on hand to Bee the 
fun, and we will wager a three-cent postage stamp 
(hat the 1 Doctor will accomplish all he undertakes

THE " PULSOPHIXITE." 

A Klvnl #» thu Vel.tcl (telle— A Hand Pro- 
peller which ♦•puUa-uwful-llRht" — A 
laxnrlou* C irrlusr" — Lnromotlou made 
easy— Ifo Instruction required. 

Some two months Ago, when the news of the 
excitement oviTvelociprdee existing in Paris and 
consequent.]? in New York, first began to bo talked 
ot in this city, Mr. "William A. Birch, whose olsver 
polygraphia entertainments ifMiie city have ren- 
dered hiro well-known to the public, conceived the 
idea o inventing a vehicle to bo propelled by bodily 
force, which should have all the advantages sod 
none of the drawbacks of the French velocipede. 
The disadvantages he found to he— first, the diffi- 
culty with whioh people learned to propel this new 
vehicle: "flcondly. the necessity of continuing at a 
rapid rate of speed; thirdly, the uncomfortable 
stile of seat.; and, fourthly, tho impossibility of 
driving it upon incline. Mr. Birch hoe invented a 
vebiole which ho calls the pulaophilite, which is to 
bo propelled by hand power, Tho wheels are five 
feet in diumotor. By a peculiar arrangement of 
cranks, an immense lever-power is obtained and a 
pressure of one uound will move it with ease on a 
level road. Unlike tho velocipede, the pulsophilite 
has two parallel wheels, and the propelling power is 
attached to both of tbom. On an ordinary road a 
crank of five inches fa used, but another crank of 
twelve inches is attached, which gives sufficient 
lever-power to enable the driver to ascend a steep 
incline. The axle is disconnected in the centre 
and the machine may be turnod wifi the greatest 
ease. No instructions are required to make any 
one a perfect master of this vehicle; a obild can 
immediately on seating Itself for the first time 
drive it with as much ease as a man. A comforta- 
ble seat fs slung on the axle, and by moans of a 
weighted balancing pole; which is lengthened or 
shortened as occasion may require, adapts itself to 
tho weight of the propeller. An arrangement to 
seoure their drapery from reaching the ground, 
renders the pulsophilite particularly Buited to 
ladies. The exertion required to propel it is very 
slight, as wa have before stated, and it can i o 
driven fast or Blow, at the option of the propeller, 
and can also be Htopped at will. While the veloci- 
pede is something of a gymnastic apparatns, the 
pulsophlli e partakes more of the. nature of a 
luxurious carriage. The arrangement of the orankB 
give it, it is claimed by the inventor, more than 
double the power of the French ve'ocipede. After 
much time spent in experimentalizing, Mr. Birch 
at length completed a model of a vehiole which he 
was satisfied possessed all the advantages over the 
French velocipede, ,at the attainment of which he 
aimed, and placed it in the hands of Kimball £ Co., 
the well-known carriage builders, at the corner of 
Bryant aad Fourth streets, who undertook to con- 
struct u working machine from it. This will in the 
course of a few days he competed, and a public 
exhibition ot its powers will bo given.-Ttfr. Biroh 
has made arrangements for scouring a patent for 
his invention, and if the pulsonbilite comes fully 
up to hiH expectations, it will prove a formidable 
rival to the velocipede, if indeed it does not en- 
tirely drive it from the field. Mr. Birch has been 
long enough in this State for us to claim him as a 
California^, and the pulaophilite may certainly be 
termed a California invention. We wish it success, 
and hope it will bring both fame and fortune lo tho 
ingenious inventor. 



The ** Figaro." 

Among the elegant " surroundings" which 
the New California Theatre haa called into 
existence, that pretty little symposium bear- 
ing tho above popular title, is one q&the 
most notable. It is just across the street, 
and is precisely the place to obtain refresh- 
ments during tho entre-acles, Mr. Herman 
Dunne, the affable proprietor, disdains to 
paBS anything over hi* counter that is not 
tho vory best of* its kind. Choice wines, li- 
quors and cigars are his specialty * 

The We-w Caiii'ornlu Theatre. 

All the patrons of the Now California The- 
atre are providing themselves with Mulleb's 
new-fa; hioned opera glasses, lately received 
from Paiis, ut 205 Montgomery street. * 



Trie Stars of the stnRe. 

The stars of the California stage are nota- 
ble for the. tasto they display in dress, and 
the majority of them have their washing 
done at the What Cheeb Laundbt, where 
also the most fashionable shirts and under- 
elothiug may be bought at very low r**ws. * 



Ooocl Living. 

San Francisco boasts the finest restaurants 
in the world, and not one in the city is more 
popular than Swain's, 636 Market street,

THE VELOCIPEDE MANIA 

Toe Fxeltement In regard to ine Vehicle 
— The Hchool of Instruction at the Pa- 
vilion— The c.iiMlmc Tonronmenti- The 
Future of Veloclpedcetrlanisiii. 

Thepublio excitement in regard to to these re- 
markable vehicles, which commenced at the gay 
capital of France, having oroBBed the Atlantic and 
seised upon onr sober Bided Eastern brethren, has 
now traversed the continent— traveling westward 
like the cholera— and tho incipient symptoms of 
the new sensational mania are developing them- 
selves in Pan Francisco, where many of oar most 
sober and respectable citizens have already " got it 
bad." 

THE VELOCIPEDE SCHOOL AT THE MECHANICS 1 
PAVILION. 

Several enterprising gentleman, desirous of af- 
fording onr citizens an opportunity of becoming 
acquainted with the use of the- velocipede, have 
leased the Mechanics' Institute building, for the 
purpose of giving [instructions in the science of 
managing this machine. The capacious building 
is as admirably adapted for this purpose as if it had 
been constructed with that objeet in view. Its vast 
area gives ample room for the manipulation of the 
machines. The floor from north to south is nearly 
level, while from west to east It has a sufficient in- 
cline to carry the machine down without propul- 
sion; thus allowing >he beginner to learn to main- 
tain bis balance before trying the somewhat diffi- 
cult experiment oT placing his feet on the treadles. 
Fall printed instructions are posted in the hall, 
while obliging attendants are ready to show pupils 
how to manage the machine. A number of our 
most respectable citizens — including an eminent 
bat somewhat eccentric divine — assemble every 
afternoon for exercise and instruction. Several 
ladles are also becoming initiated into tho'myster- 
ios of thia invigorating exercise ; and if the sex can 
see the wisdom of emancipating themselves from 
the prudiehneas whioh compels them to adopt »o 
unnatural and unsafe a position in equestrian ex- 
ercise, wo may at no distant day expect to see them 
become adepts in a method of locomotion which 
possesses such advantages over ordinary pedestri- 
anism. Although the school has been but a few 
days in operation, many learners have already be- 
come quite proficiont, and, barring occasional tum- 
bles in which no bones are broken, they can now 
propel their "animals'* around the building at a 
rate of speed which excites the envy of those who 
have not yet succeeded in overcoming the incipient 
difficulties of its management. 

A tyro's expedience on THE VELOCIPEDE. 
Without attempting to give any instructions in 
regard to the management of the machine— which 
can be imparted on the spot to those who desire to 
learn— we might, from the stand-point of personal 
experience, give an inkling of some of the sensa- 
tions of a noviae while being initiated into the 
mysteries of vfclocidestrianism. The first feeling, 
on bust riding the bicyoie, and resting ohe'B weight 
upon the saddle, is that of utter inability to main- 
tain the necessary equilibrium. The tendency to 
topple over appears to be insurmountable by any 
skill whioh the learner -can hope to attain. It is 
difficult for him to see how any vehiole having but 
two wheels, one directly in advance of the other, 
oan be made to stand or run upright, unless held 
so by some extraneous means. A little reflection, 
however will remind him that any kind of a disk 
—as a wheel or riDg— if propelled along the ground, 
will maintain its erect position so long as it keeps 
in motion ; and that tho same principle of centrifu- 
gal force whioh bears up ,the disk and keeps the 
spinning-top ereot, maintains the equilibrium of 
the velocipede while in motion. The handle of the 
machine is to be grasped firmly in the hands of the 
iid r, and when skillfully manipulated itaotsina 
certain sense as a balance pole; the handle guides 
the fore wheel in any direction, while a, quick turn 
toward the side to which the learaer feels himself 
falling, will restore the balance, until at length it 
can be maintained with but little effort. The be- 
ginner will find it hard work, and will encounter 
many falls and perhaps a few scratches; out he 
should not feel discouraged at these mishaps ; if he 
cannot always maintain his equilibrium be con at 
least preserve his equanimity, and success will 
finally crown his efforts. He will, after a few les- 
sons, be surprised and delighted to find that he 
can place first one and then both feet on the pedals, 
and glide down the hall with the velocity and free- 
dom of the wind, 

VELOCIPIDE TOTjnNAMENTS. 
It is eon'emplated by tho managers of the new 
school to give a series of grand toarnnmentB, in 
which both sexes will eontend for piizes, and to 
which the public will be admitted for a trilling fee. 
Tho school already numbers several experts, one of 
whom we saw go round tho hall at the rate of a 
mile in 3:30, Oar popular fellow townsman, A — x 
B— d— in, Rsq,, has attaiued remarka' le skill, and 
will probably carry off eome of tho honors of the 
approaching contest ; while Dr. 8— d— r will doubt- 
less give some younger men a lively turn in more 
senses than one. These tournaments are already 
very popular in the eastern oitioB. At a reoent ex 
oiting raoe at Pike's Music Hall in Cincinnati, three 
valuable prizes were awarded, the first of which 
was carried off amid the plaudits of a large and en- 
thusiastic audience, by Mr. W, W. Grow, who ac- 
complished s third of a mile in 1:16. The third 
prize was for the person who could ride the veloci- 
pede at the slowest gait — a very delioate task, and 
requiring careful judgment and a good denl of tine 
management, This was won by-Mr. Miller, who 
occupied 5 :10 in doing a third of a mile. 

THE VELOCIPEDE AS A LABOR- BA VTNO MACHINE. 

1 he velocipede is not alone to he considered as a 
toy or plaything, but it will he found to materially 
lessen the time and labor now Jexpended in pedes- 
trian ism, and to be a positive blessing to thos* who 
cannot afford tie laxnry of horse-flesh—indeed we 
quebtion whether many will not prefer it even to 
the saddle animal, as being less troublesome and 
requiring uo care'. It is extensively ueed in Paris 
by messengers and letter carriers, and even by mer- 
chants in going from their residences to their pla- 
ces of business. We lcok to see the time when the 
substantial Front-surest merobant will, at the con. 



elusion of the day's business, order John to bring 
up the velocipede, bestride it with mingled dignity 
and grace, and reach his home at the Mission in 
•boat ton minotes, without an effort. 

THE MACHINE AND ITS MAKUFACTUBER8. 

The accompanying engraving represents the Vel- 
ocipede manufactured by Palmer, Knox & Co. of 
thisoity. These enterprising gentlemen have in- 
troduced a number of improvements on the French 
machine, and those now turned out by them are 
models of lightness and Btrength, The only trouble 
is that they cannot make them fast enough to sap- 
ply the rapidly increasing demand. As 'there is no 
patent on the vehicle, other parties will doubtless 
embark in the enterprise, and it is ramored that 
the extensive carriage house of Kimball A Co. are 
about to go into the manufacture of velocipedes on 
an extensive scale— in whioh oase we may hope that 
the demand n ill soon be supplied. 

BPEED OF THE VELOCIPEDE. 

The Yelooipede can only be used to advantnge 
under the favorable conditions of smooth and level 
roads. We glean the following information in re 
gard to it from the American Artisan : 

The speed attained by the swifter kind of French 
velceipedea averages from twelve to thirteen mdes 
as hour: adepts find no difficulty whatever in ac- 
complishing fully fifty miles within five hours 
without once alighting from their vehicles. A 
couple of amateurs making a tour through a part 
of France challenged e«ich other as to which oould 
perform the greatest distance within four-and- 
twenty hours. One gave in after having accom- 

Slished 87 miles; the other went on an audit onal 
J miles, making 123 miles in all. On the 21et of 
September last, a party of nine quitted houen 
early in the morning, mounted on velocipedes and 
arrived in Paris in time for dinner the same eve- 
ning, having performed the distance of 66 miles, 
exclusive of stoppage, at a rate of speed averaging 
ten and eleven miles an hour. It should be under- 
stood that, in impelling a velocipede, the limba are 
not const.iE tly in motion ; as on level ground, when 
t e impetus is at an average rate, or when the ma- 
chine is descending an incline, the feet may be 
removed from the pedals, and the lege be placed on 
the bar fixed in front of the velocipede for this 
purpose. A slight impulsion given to the vehicle 
from time to time sumoes to keep up the speed. 
The aBcent of an incline greater than one foot 
in twenty-five feet is considered difficult if not 
impracticable. When the rider, therefore, en- 
counters a hill of more than the average steep- 
ness, he has to dismount and lead hie Velocipede 
with his hand, which, we are told, he can do with 
almost the same oase as ne can carry an ordinary 
walking-stick. 

I>' WHAT CITIES IT CAN BE BEST USED. 
Perhaps f«w cities in Ameroia are bo well adapted 
for the use of the velocipede as Paris. In that 
city, the regularity and' smoothness of the street 
pavements are extremely favorable to this exercise, 
and the excitable Parisians of both eexes and all 
conditions of society have almost "gone daft' 
over this fascinating machine, which, alt hough not 
altogether new in principle, has never until re- 
cently, been brought to.suob a state of perfection* 
aatomakoit practicable for ordinary use. Among 
American cities. Philadelphia, being spread over a 
large area of level land, is perhaps the best adapted 
for its use. Boston, is too hilly, and the streets too 
narrow; bat its suburbs are full of wide and beau- 
tiful avenues, in good passable condition at nearly 
all seasons of the year. New York, is too crowded 
for the safe use of so delicate a maohine; hat its 
magnifiaenti Central Park— unliko the sandbanks 
whioh our amiable oitv fathers have delegated to 
ua as a " park "—is admirably adapted for itsnae, 
and during the coming summer will doubtless be 
thronged with eager seekers after health and pleas- 
ure combined in this favorite exercise. In San 
Francisoo, the level port ions of the city, east of 
Kearny and south of Geary streets, are "11 practi- 
cable for velocipede travel, provided the streets 
are kept free from acoumul lions of mud and sand. 
The Cliff Honseroad affords an admirable avenue 
for this exercise ;.and Captain Foster would doubt- 
less welcome the weary veloci pedestrian with as 
much cordiality ob if |he came in a ooaoh-and-f our. 
The road has however, some grades whioh can 
only be ascended by a strong and expert rider. The 
ocean beach i» almost impracticable, as the narrow 
wheels sink in the Band, and the exercise becomes 
too laborious to be pie asant. 



THAT "PSYCHOLOGICAL EXPOSURE I" 

Dr. Benton at the Alhumbru — The Alta 
Reporter fooled — A. Challenge and »n 
Acceptance— Amusing- Context to come 
off to-morrow nigh t at the same place* 

When it was announced that on hut Sunday eve- 
ning Dr. Benton and Assistants would give some 
strange experiments in psychology or animal mag- 
not ism, at the Albambra Theatre, the wiseacres of 
the antediluvian Alia put their heads together and 
determined that Buoh " hambuggery" should be 
exposed and the perpetrators thereof held up to 
pnblio scorn. True, psychology has long since 
passed from the domain of the speculative to that 
of the actual sciences, and is everywhere recog- 
nized by scientific men as an accomplished fact; 
but, its discovery having transpired at a period 
subsequent to the doluge. the Alia people had not 
as yet been able to see through it ; so they sent one 
of their young men up to "expose" it; and the 
aforesaid verdant } outh exposed— his own ignoranoe 
in his report. It is scarcely necessary to detail how. 
this young man was bamboozled by the stories of a 
mischievous boy, who of hia own volition came on 
the stand, and was not claimed by the Doctor to be 
under the mysterious influence at all— for bos it not 
already been detailed in these columns ? Sullies it 
to eay that the spirit of the usually amiable Doctor 
has been aroused, and he now challenges the fullest 
investigation, as may be Been bv a card in another 
column. Jt is proposed that the believers and dis- 
believers in psychology—or at least in the Doctor's 
powers in the interpretation of that science— shall 
assemble in mass meeting at the A Ibambra Theatre 
to-morrow evening, and subject the matter to a 
conclusive practical test. It is ramored that the 
AU-* reporter has accepted the Doctor's challenge. 
The belligerent will be on hand fully armed for the 
contest— the Doctor olad in a glittering panoply of 
philosophic troth, and using a bag of twenty-dollar 
pieces as a shield ; the Alta reporter will bear as a 
lance an enormous goose quill— plucked from the 
identical bird whioh onoe saved Rome, and whioh 
is now conneoted with the Alta office— while a hog 
of half-dollars will serve as a shield to protect his 
delicate person from the shafts of the irate Doctor. 
The following plan for conducting the contest 
has been agreed upon : A small boy will be 
brought upon the stage, and as soon as the 
Doctor shall pronounce him to be under psy- 
chological influence, he will cause him to ex- 
tend his band, and upon hia outstretched palm— 
or if that should prove too small, then upon 
a table— the Alfa man will proceed to place half- 
dollar pieces, one at a time, and the Doctor will 
alternate each one with a' twenty-dollar gold piece. 
As the Alta man is probably backed by his affluent 
proprietors, while the Doctor is said to be sustained 
in this matter by the Bank of 'California, thiB little 
financial con' est is likely to continue until a good 
sized pile is accumulated. The boy will then be 
Informed that if he can close his outstretched 
fingers upon that glittering array of " twenties," 
they shall become his property, after deducting 
from them the equivalent of the silver upon the 
table, which goes to the sceptical reporter, who in 
turn loses all his half-dollars in oase of the failure 
of the boy to accomplish this very simple feat 
When we reflect upon the inflaenoe of the tempt- 
ing lucre upon juvenile as well as mature minds, we 
may conjecture thut toe youngster will strive pretty 
hard after that pile. What will be the result of 
this aingnlar experiment we hesitate to conjecture, 
but we hazard nothing by asserting that if it Is 
carried out on the terms proposed, that on next 
Monday morning, either the Bank of California 
will become a "busted" institution, or the pro- 
prietors of the Alta will be a ruined community. 
At any rate, everybody will be on hand to see the 
fun, and we will wager a three-cent postage stamp 
that thejDootor will accomplish all he undertakes

A. Melancholy Week. 

This wepk has been a very dull one for most the- 
atrical managers, and the past live nights have 
proved the saddest in the year. Moguire's Opera 
House, Metropolitan Theatre. Olympic, Tbea+re 
Comique. Wilsons Circus, and the Alhambra, have 
all hadsliui houses, though the latter was helped 
considerably at 'he beginning of the week by the 
production of its new pantomime. The rain has 
[alien in torrents and kept people at home. The 
New California Theatre has held its own, and more 
than its own, tho other managers think, for it has 
held a large proportion of their quondam patrons 

nightly. t 

Mr. Cbnrlea Poole in » New Rote. 

The C'ltl in noticing the performance at tbe 
Metropolitan Theatre on Thursday evening, says: 

"At this house, Mr. Charl-e Poole personated 
" Medea," in 'he tragedy of that name, in a most 
effective manner." 

There was an attract ion ! Just foacv Mr. CharleB 
Poole ss the outraged "Medea," reproaching the 
recreant "Jason," and tearing his (her) hair with 
rageatha7inK;hi* (her) beauty scorned. Accord- 
ing to the law regulating tho possession of property 
by husband and wife, the former often has the 
best of it: "what is hers is his and what is his is 
his own :" but under the homestead law of C alifor- 
nia, the wife can retain property fn her own name, 
and. we fancy, Mrs. Charles Poole's impersonation 
of *' Medea," i3 her own, by virtue of the homestead 
art. _ 



Benefit of John AJexonder. 
On Monday, John Alexander, one of tbe oldest 
theatrical agents on the Pacific coast, who has 
sucoessf ully engineered operatic, dramatic, musi- 
cal and equestrian enterprises without number, 
will take a benefit at the Metropolitan Theatre. 
The entertainment to be given is not quit* deoided 
on, but Johnwill do his best to present one of the 
choicest bills of the season. 



•'"Fecldo" and "Osaka." 
R. G. Marsh, the theatrical manager who recently 
arrived from Japan, brought with him. among other 
curiosities, two beautiful little Japaneee dogs of a 
famous ^reed. introduced by the Dutch. The color 
<sblaok and white; the head somewhat resembles 
that- of the Blenheim spaniel. The two little beau- 
ties are named respectively ' Teddo " and" 0- aka.' 

Pnife»aor Storey. 
Professor Morey, ventriloquist and profeseor of 
legerdemain, was in town yesterday for the i>ur- 
posw of engagiug au actress who could sing and 
dance, bnt did not succeed. Be went to Sacra- 
mento. He will shortly return to ttfra city and 
give u series of entetainments. — 

Profeaaor Unrtx, the fit unionist. 

Professor Hartz, tbe illusionist, who has aston- 
ished tbe inhabitants of most of the cities in the 
United States, left New York on the steamer of 
January 23d, for San Framiseo. We find the fol- 
lowing description of bis beet foat in the Fort 
Wayne Gazette of Dec. lllh: 

Tbe llower-pot trick is alone worth the price of 
admission. No description can give any idea of the 
perfectly miraculous nature of tho performance ; it 
must be seen to be believed and appreciated. A 
hollow paper cone, open at both ends, was exhib- 
ited: two fljwer-pots. rilled with sand, were also 
suown hw audience; gentleman examined them 
thoroughly, ran their oanes thronxh them, and 
were satisfied that there was nothing but dry s^nd 
in them. The pots were then rut upon a braes 
plate, raised above tho stand bv wire legB. fcvery 
one could see under them. The open con» was 
then placed overthelirt of the not aud gradually 
raised, when a rosebush gradually grew out of the 
pot, till it bad assumed its nutural proportions and 
was in fuP bloom; thi • was done with two which 
stood in full eight, not ten f«it from the audience. 
The cone was placed over another empty brass plat-t 
raised like t^-e others: immediately removing the 
cine, a flower-pot and rosebush sprang instantane 
ously into existence. But no imagination which 
has not seen the feat can picture its beauty or its 
utter incomprehensibility 

Ae Hellor is also on bis way to this city, it is 
probable that we shall havathe two great conjurors 
of the day both in the field at the same time. 



Matter Kaphael De Solla. 

Wa'son's Art Journal, in a notice of a concert 
given by the Mendelssohn Orchestra Union, thus 
speaks of the perfo mance of Master Kaphael De 
Solla, who played an engagement eome time ago at 
the Olympic and Alhambra Theatres, and made 
several appearances at Maguire's Opera House and 
the Metropolitan: 

Master De Solla, a singer at Bryant's Minstrel 
Opera, appeared in this concert as the wonderful 
infant {. n ,,r—£ misnomer, aa immatur males oever 
po-aess a real tenor voice, but a quality of tone 
differing from any other executants in like range 
ui Ecule— a thrill, co'orless ex^oution of notes 
within .'tenor and contralto range. He is a most 
intrepid Ringer, lacking grace and ease in delivery 
of English words, vet storming bis public bv the 
spirit, fire and dash which signalize the startling 
effect of u clear, ringing, extensive voice, and <he 
power with which he occasionally astonishes with- 
al: bis cantabile and bravou.a singing are both of 
course marked with some imperfootions both as to 
the organ, his style and smooth execution. With 
all fair allowance, however, his performances on 
that oooasion were truly won <erf ul for a boy not 
over twelve years old. and surpassed any lika exhi- 
bition of boy prec city in that style of vocalization 
we ever witnessed.

INTERIOR. 

Oaeuutd. — Oakland is losing the respectable 
dullness and sobriety which once characterized it. 
Sbattuck and Hillegass' Hall has been turned into 
a Theatre, and the Oakland Seat is full of notices : 
"Look oat for the Masquerade Ball I" "The 
Masquerade Ball— Look o°t for it:" etc. Is it pos- 
sible that a masquerade ball is to be given in Oak- 
land ? Just fancy — a masquerade ball in Oakland ! 
What next ? 

SAOkAMENTO.— Oharles Wheatleigh and tho Ma 
guire's Opera House compary have been playing 
Th« Lancashire I/om and A Flash of Lightning. Labt 
night Blow for Blow was produced. The engage- 
ment was proving a financial success. 

VaLLEJO, Cal.— The Vallejo Chronicle of Jan. 26th, 
says: "Profs. .Morey and Livingston gave their 
first of a series of performances last night at Eureka 
liall. The attendance was small, but every one 
was well pleased, and many who were lucky 
enough to secure prizes, went tbeir way rejoicing. 
At the 'conclusion of tbe performance, some 
tweDty or more prizes were distributed to the lucky 
ticket holder. The aggregate value of "these gifts 
amounted to nearly as much as the gross receipts 
at the door. Among the gifts distributed we may 
mention $40 in coin, to a lady; a sack of flour, a 
water bucket, a wash board, a broom, a pair ot 
ladies' aose, set of hoops, canned fruit, etc.. to as 
many gentlemen, which created much merriment. 
The performance will be repeated this and the two 
succeeding evenings, with an entire change of pro- 
gramme. "

San J08E-— The San Jose ifrreury, after a littls 
classical talk about the Thracian. Spartan. Athen- 
ian and other, rulers, who took care to provide 
amusements for the people and an appropriate 
reference to tbe Olympian g&oiaa, ears : "Id view 
of this world-aoknowledged benefit of popular 
amusements, is it not a little surprising that the 
enlightened people 1 ©* San Jose, numbering about 
8,000 souls, have not inaugurated eome sort of place 
for rational pastime? Hero, there is not a theatre, 
»u amphitheatre, a good eoacert hall, a Thespian 
school, a good lecture-room, or even a dobatlng 
eocisty. True, the Yeung Men's Christian Asso- 
ciation has a respectable roading-roam and a decent 
place for religious meetings, for which they deserve 
credit; but in the way of popular amusements, 
there is not a suitable or attractive pUce.in this 
city. Will not some enterprising person remedy 
thin deBoiencyby building a good theatre or con- 
cert hall*.'" This is a lamentable state of affairs. 
Han Jose ought to be ashamed of itself. 

Cabsok Oitt.— The Pixley Sister* received a 
oomplmentaiy benefit at tbe Carson Theatre on 
Saturday, Jan. 23d. The performance consists 1 of 
The Tko Grrgorite, with Miss Minnie Pixley, Mies 
Annie Pixley, W, H. Bates, L. Frisbie and Mre. 
Robinson in the cast ; au interlude, and the panto- 
mime of tbe Milliner's Holiday. 

Silver Oitt, I.T.— The Owyhee AcalaneJie ot 
Jan. 2d, has the following intimation that no 
dramatic company having visited Silver City late'y, 
the inhabitants have been amused by home-made 
amusements: " During tho past two months, we 
have been on several occasions ag eeably enter- 
tained by our Amateurs, under tbe management of 
Ed. Blake, a restless spirit ever ready to put in for 
a deserving object. The entertainments have been 
'benefite,' and handsomely have our citizens re- 
sponded. But, Blake (wo address the manager), 
don't you think you oould scare up something 
.tew— an improvement on that last? Tour lady 
support is excellent; we were much pleased with 
the ballads and duets. You must rehearse the 
gentlemen more— get new pieces for them— don't 
let them know more than you do — and last, buware 
of au imposed upon public To-night, Mr. Isaacs 
takes a benefit, and we hope that the house wilt be 
full. But, beware, Manager Blake — complimentary 
tickets won't save you, If you fail to 'briagdown 
the house ' to-night." Silver City beasts a theatre, 
two dancing schools and a gymnasium. This is not 
bad for a oity of 3,175 inhabitants. 

VuiortJiA OiTy, Nevada,— Miss Luoille Western 
and J. A. Heme, supported by Harrison, Beatty, 
Mrs. Stewart, Mrs. Keach aud" others, are still at 
Piper's Opera House. Heme, having played Rip 
Von Wi'ildr, Miss Western is now playing her parts. 
She appeared ai " CamiLle " on Thursday evening* 
The velocipede mania has broken out in Virginia 
Oity and vicinity. 

PORTLAND, Obeqon. -Verily, F. M. Bates' lines 
have fallen in pleasant places since he left Califor- 
nia. He has it all his own way in Oregon. The 
Oregonian of the 15th says: 

There wa3 a crowded honse last evening at Oro 
Fino Theatre, to witness the play of JiieheHeu, on 
the occasion of Mr. Bates' benefit. The audience 
room was literally packed full, from almost the 
very front of the stage to the extreme back end of 
tne spacious hall, aid the aisles on either side were 
filled with chairs, while many, unable to find seats, 
stood during the whole performance. The attend 
ancn was such a compliment as no actor ever before 
received In Portland. Of the performance we can 
only sny that it Was rendered e"en batter than per- 
haps anybody hart anticipated. Mr. Bates took tho 
character ot " Richelieu " for the first time, but 
he plived it with really great power and fidelity to 
tbe historioidea of the haugh'y, indomitable, vin- 
diotivp, crafty, queralons yet pa.ient und great 
cardinal.

the lease, eight years and four months, from Jan. 
1st, at a rental of $1*5,000. Mr. Reeder is a real es- 
tate broker, unknown in theatrical affairs, but he 
takes it on speculation. It Irk his intention to close 
the hall for about ten days or two weeks for the 
purpose of making some alterations under the stage 
it the way of dressing rooms, and when all is ready,

duced at Pike's Opera House, on the 4th inst. It

sensation in the drunken scene as did Schneider in 
Paris, 

After Dark remains on the bills at Niblo's Garden,

Adelina Patti bos at last quitted Paris. The few 
debutantes who have appeared during the winter in 
Paris to oppose her soon yielded before her serried 
triumphs Patti has especially succeeded in Paris 
this season in opera bouffe, and more especially on 
Sunday, when it is the fashion to make up the 
opera bill with scenes from different operas. Patti 
bade farewell to Paris in the first act of La Traviata 
and the third of La Somn •■in&uta. Th» " Iuliam " 
was thoroughly orowded from the pit to the roof; 
so great is the popularity of La Diva that it was 
almost impossible to breathe, and the beat was un- 
supportable. Every note called forth a peal of 
applause; but then Patti never eang better. When, 
after La Traviata, the curtain began to fall, five bou- 
quets and a gold crown were thrown on the stage. 
Three times the favorite had to reappear before 
the curtain. 

Mr. Boucicault has purchased a piece of land at
